All advertisement orders accepted for publication by Graduate Prospects (GP) are subject to the following conditions. No other conditions will be binding unless agreed in writing by Graduate Prospects and you. The placing of any order by you will be deemed to be an acceptance of these conditions and any conditions stipulated on an Order Form. GP may revise these Terms and Conditions at any time by updating this posting and therefore you should check this page periodically


For the purpose of these terms and conditions, the following words have the meanings ascribed to them:

"Advertisements" means any advertisement, posting or insert detailed in the Order Form;

"Copy Deadline" means the copy deadline stated on the Order Form;

"Fee" means the amount payable by you for the placing of the Advertisement as set out on the Order Form;

"Order Form" means the form submitted by you to GP governing the details of the Advertisement including, without limitation, the technical specification; and

"Website" means the Graduate Prospects website currently situated at http://www.prospects.ac.uk/


All quotations and estimates GP make are invitations to treat. The Order Form and copy of the Advertisement is an offer subject to these terms and conditions, which becomes binding between us when GP accept your offer. The Order Form and the Advertisement must be received by the deadline detailed on the Order Form.


3.1 In consideration of the Fee, GP shall arrange for the display of the Advertisement on the Website and/or in publications as detailed in the Order Form.

3.2 You will provide all materials for the Advertisement in accordance with GP policies concerning lead-times, deadlines and format. The most up to date version of these is at www.prospects.ac.uk. GP shall not be required to publish any Advertisement that is not received in accordance with such policies. You grant to GP a non-exclusive, worldwide licence to reproduce, display or distribute the Advertisement on the Website and in agreed publications in accordance with these conditions.


4.1 You must supply the copy by each Copy Deadline specified. In the event of copy instructions not being received by the Copy Deadline GP reserve the right, at GP sole discretion:

5.3 Except as expressly set out in the Order Form, any renewal of the Order Form and acceptance of any additional Order Form shall be at GP sole discretion. Pricing for any renewal period is subject to GP change from time to time. In no circumstances does the placing of an order confer the right to renew on similar terms.

6.2 All initial payments due in respect of any Advertisements must be paid on or in advance of the Advertisement start date set forth in the Order Form.

  • refuse to display the advert

Some local university careers services charge certain companies to post certain adverts.

Both parties agree to abide by the terms of the Data Protection Acts 1985 and 1998 and all other similar legislation in any applicable jurisdiction.
