Using the Student Exchange tool
Round Square’s role in student exchanges is one of facilitator, enabling Round Square Candidate and Member Schools to connect and organise exchanges for the benefit of the students taking part. Round Square does not organise any exchanges itself and is not therefore responsible for individual exchange arrangements. Each school is responsible for ensuring that it has in place arrangements which meet the requirements of the Student Exchange Protocol. The school will be liable for any eventuality arising out of the exchanges it organises including legal liability for any claim made by a student or parent. Failure to comply with the Student Exchange Protocol also amounts to a breach of the Candidate or Member agreement with Round Square.
Round Square therefore accepts no legal responsibility or liability for student exchanges whatsoever.
Jurisdiction and applicable law
The English courts will have exclusive jurisdiction over any claim arising from or related to a visit to our website, although we retain the right to bring proceedings against you for breach of these conditions in your country of residence or other relevant country.
