Hoodies & Clothing

By purchasing clothing from angliastudent.com you agree to the following Terms & Conditions:


Each item will be charged at the stated price plus the appropriate P&P cost as detailed on the website and all promotional material, relative to the postage destination. A receipt email will be sent upon completion of your order. Please check all details - if there is anything missing from your order or any details are incorrect, please email us immediately at info@angliastudent.com. Failure to advise us of any errors within 24 hours of receipt of the confirmation will result in you still being liable for the full cost of the items.

Postage and Delivery

The charges for postage and packaging are added to the cost of the item and are necessary for us to dispatch your garment to you. There are three charges - UK, Europe and International. Should you order more than one garment the postage and package charge will reflect this.

Returns and Refunds

If you have a genuine reason for wanting to return your item, please email info@angliastudent.com in the first instance, or call 01223 460008 explaining the reasons why the garment is to be returned. Your item must be returned unworn and in the original packaging. You must pay for the cost of the return, it must be sent by recorded delivery and you should keep your receipt as proof of postage. We will not accept returns in the following cases:

  • The garment has been worn (unless there is a provable quality issue)
  • The garment has been proven to be deliberately damaged
  • The garment has the incorrect personalisation details (we keep your request for personalisation and the liability for the correct spelling of names etc is yours.) If the error is deemed to be ours we will replace the garment at no extra cost
  • The garment doesn't fit - full size details are available on the website and we will only refund in specific circumstances and if the criteria above are met (i.e. has not been worn and is returned in its original packaging and is not personalised)
  • The garment is the wrong colour - you are liable for the colour selection you make and we keep a copy of your order to confirm your selection
  • The garment is unwanted - we will only refund this if the garment meets the criteria set out above i.e. has not been worn and is returned in its original packaging and has not been personalised

All refunds will be issued by Anglia Ruskin Students' Union. In the event of an item being returned due to quality issues, we will take this up with our supplier and advise you of the outcome.

Cancellation of orders

To cancel an order, please contact us immediately. Cancelled orders that haven't been processed will be refunded with a deduction of a cancellation fee (charged in UK pounds sterling), which is 10% of the order(s) total price. Cancellation fee is charged to cover administrative costs and transaction fees involved in the cancellation of order(s).

Cancelled orders that have been processed will be refunded with a deduction of a cancellation fee (UK pounds sterling), which is 20% of the order(s) total price.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accept cancellations for products that have already been shipped and our Return Policy will apply in that case.
