Fees and Refund Arrangements

Payment Schedule

The fees applicable to each course and category of student and fee payment schedules are detailed in the applicable Student Application Form. Contact the College to obtain details.

Visa refusal

Visa refusal prior to course commencement will result in 100% refund of Tuition Fees paid in advance paid within 28 days.

Student Default

An overseas student or intending overseas student “defaults”, in relation to a course at a location, if:
a) the course starts at the location on the agreed starting day, but the student does not start the course on that day
(and has not previously withdrawn); or
b) the student withdraws from the course at the location (either before or after the agreed starting day); or
c) the registered provider of the course refuses to provide, or continue providing, the course to the student at the location
because of one or more of the following events:

  • the student failed to pay an amount he or she was liable to pay the College, directly or indirectly,
    in order to undertake the course;
  • the student breached a condition of his or her student visa;
  • misbehaviour by the student.

Student requested refunds

Refund requests must be in writing, signed and dated by the student, and delivered to the College in person, by email,
fax or letter Refund requirements when a student requests a refund are detailed in the applicable Written Agreement.
Contact the College to obtain details.

Provider Default (College delayed commencement, non-commencement, non-completion of delivery)

In the event that the College is unable to commence the course on time or deliver your course in full, the College will offer you a refund in respect of your enrolment. Refund requirements when the provider defaults on course delivery are detailed
in the applicable Written Agreement. Contact the College to obtain details.

Missed Payments

Students who do not make instalment payments by the due date will be excluded from attendance and have their enrolment
suspended for the lesser of one week or until the missed instalment payment is made. If the missed instalment payment
has not been made at the end of the one week suspension the student will have their enrolment cancelled.

Fee Changes

Prior to a student enrolling fees may be altered without notice. Once a student has completed enrolment, fees will not be
subject to change for the normal duration of the course. If a course length is extended by the student then any fee increases
will be required to be paid for the extended component of the course.

Tuition Protection Service

The Tuition Protection Service (TPS) is an initiative of the Australian Government to assist international students whose
education providers are unable to fully deliver their course of study. The TPS ensures that international students are able
to either:

  • complete their studies in another course or with another education provider or
  • receive a refund of their unspent tuition fees
