The following terms and conditions apply to all students accepted to study at MadeFor (run by MadeFor Limited (Dutch Chamber of Commerce number: 73671789) of Johan Huizingalaan 400, 1066JS, Amsterdam, The Netherlands). By applying for a MadeFor bootcamp and paying a bootcamp fee you confirm acceptance of these terms and conditions as legally binding on you until successful completion by you of the bootcamp (unless terminated or cancelled earlier in accordance with these terms and conditions).
Bootcamp attendance and conduct
MadeFor bootcamps are intensive bootcamps that require a serious commitment from all students. MadeFor wants to ensure that all students on its bootcamps have the best possible opportunity to succeed and therefore reserves the right to suspend from the bootcamp any student who in any way disrupts the bootcamp environment. We hope that our selection process means we will never have to do this, of bootcamp. Other than in the event of serious disruptive behavior we will seek to resolve any issues by way of coaching and dialogue before taking more serious steps. If, despite our careful selection process, we find (acting reasonably and having undertaken a thorough investigation) that a student is failing to keep up with the demands of the bootcamp they have chosen, and after consulting with the student we decide that the student is not likely to successfully complete the bootcamp, we reserve the right to require the student to leave the bootcamp. Provided we are satisfied, acting reasonably and taking all reasonable circumstances into consideration, that the student has made a good faith effort to succeed on the bootcamp we may choose to refund a pro-rata amount of the bootcamp fees paid by a student who is required to leave (based on the number of full weeks of the bootcamp remaining after the student was required to leave, as a percentage of the total number of bootcamp weeks). In any other circumstances the terms of section 4 (“Payment of Fees if the bootcamp is not completed”) below will apply. Students will be required to comply with all rules and regulations of MadeFor or the premises in which MadeFor bootcamps are held. MadeFor reserves the right to exclude any student for failure to do so.
Bootcamp content and structure
Each MadeFor bootcamp will last for 4 to 8 calendar weeks (various formats are applicable). In addition, MadeFor bootcamps and delivery thereof will evolve. The content, structure and methods used in each bootcamp is subject to a constant process of review and improvement. This means that the bootcamp that you attend may not be identical to previous bootcamps, and, whilst it will be materially the same, may not be identical to that described on the MadeFor website.
The student must pay 100% of the published fee for the relevant bootcamp so that it is received in MadeFor’s bank account not later than 10 days after the commencement of the bootcamp. The fees are non-refundable if the student withdraws from the bootcamp within 7 working days of the start of the full time Bootcamp.
The bootcamp fees quoted are offered on the basis that they are being fully funded by the individual taking the bootcamp. Where bootcamp fees are being covered by an employer, you must inform the admissions team and they can provide details of employer funded routes. If a student knowingly pays bootcamp fees at the individual direct rate and is subsequently reimbursed or funded by an employer they will be deemed as in material breach of the student terms and liable for any funds to be recovered.
Payment method and external payment plan options
MadeFor will direct students to the payment services provider used by MadeFor so that the student can pay the bootcamp fees online. Alternatively, students can pay the bootcamp fees by bank transfer to MadeFor’s nominated bank account. Third party providers may, from time to time, offer loans to prospective MadeFor students. These providers are entirely independent of MadeFor and MadeFor assumes no responsibility or liability for the loans or services that they offer. In particular, students must undertake their own due diligence on each provider and the terms of any loans or services that they offer.
Payment of fees if the bootcamp is not completed
If a student fails to complete the bootcamp, MadeFor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to charge the student the full amount of fees immediately following confirmation that the student will not be completing the bootcamp for any reason. In exceptional circumstances MadeFor may, in its sole discretion, agree to waive payment of part or all of the outstanding fees.
Any bootcamp fee paid by a student in accordance with the payment plan selected by the student set out in section 3 above is non-refundable unless the bootcamp on which the student is enrolled is cancelled (whether prior to the bootcamp commencing, or after its commencement) by MadeFor, in which case any bootcamp fee which has been paid by the student will be refunded in full. If a bootcamp is temporarily suspended for a period of less than one month no bootcamp fees will be refunded. If a bootcamp is suspended for a period of longer than one month students enrolled on that bootcamp will be given the option of continuing the bootcamp when it resumes or receiving a pro-rata refund of bootcamp fees for the suspended part of the bootcamp (based on the number of full weeks of the bootcamp that were suspended, as a percentage of the total number of bootcamp weeks).
Right to study
All students must have the right to study in the EU under applicable EU rules, and hold a current visa if necessary. A guide to these rules can be found at: http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/visas-immigration/studying/ As a general rule you will not need a visa if you hold a passport issued by the UK or any other country in the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland. Please note that MadeFor is not currently an accredited institution for the purposes of the “student visitor” category. Students will be required to produce photographic ID (either Passport or Driving Licence) on enrolment on a bootcamp. If you intend to rely on other documents you should provide full details to MadeFor when applying for a bootcamp.
If for any reason MadeFor cancels a planned bootcamp after a student has been accepted on the bootcamp MadeFor will refund to the student any bootcamp fees paid by the student (as per section 5) but will have no further liability to the student. Except in respect of death or personal injury caused by MadeFor’s negligence or MadeFor’s fraud, MadeFor shall not be liable (to the extent able to be excluded at law) to any student by reason of any representation (unless fraudulent), or any implied warranty, condition or other term, or any duty at common law, or under the express terms of the contract for any loss of profit or any indirect, special or consequential loss, damage, costs, expenses or other claims (whether caused by the negligence of MadeFor, its servants or agents or otherwise) which arise out of or in connection with the provision of the MadeFor bootcamp and the entire liability of MadeFor under or in connection with the bootcamp shall not exceed the amount of MadeFor’s charges for the bootcamp on which the student is or has applied to be enrolled. MadeFor shall not be liable to the student or be deemed in breach of contract by reason of any delay or failure to perform any of MadeFor’s obligations in relation to the bootcamp if this was due to any cause beyond MadeFor’s reasonable control.

If a student is not satisfied with any aspect of MadeFor, whether that be the bootcamp content, curriculum, facilities or any other issue, they should first raise their concern with the relevant bootcamp coach. If a discussion or correspondence with the relevant bootcamp coach does not satisfactorily resolve the student’s concern, or the student does not feel they are able to raise the concern with the bootcamp coach (for example because it relates to the coaches’ personal performance) the complaint should be raised with Agnese Spona, Founder of Makers Academy, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone to +31 652781091.
