TERMS AND CONDITIONS - Entry Conditions I have read, understood and agree to abide by the following conditions:

1. Student Visa Conditions You must abide by the student conditions of your student

visa relating to fees, course performance, class commitment (and maintain a valid enrolment for your chosen course of study), work rights and good conduct and where applicable the course attendance requirement of 80% at CIT. If you are judged to have not complied with these visa conditions, CIT is required to notify immigration authorities. This may result in cancellation of your student visa and you may be required to return to your own country. You must also notify CIT within 7 days of your arrival in Australia of your current residential address and must advise any changes of address within 7 days. CIT is required by law to keep your residential address so you can be contacted if you do not satisfy course requirements. If you do not abide by this condition, you may not be aware of any such contact by CIT. This situation may lead to the cancellation of your student visa. CIT will monitor your “Academic Performance and Attendance” in accordance with the CIT “International Student Compliance with ESOS Act Policy” (www.cit.edu.au/current/policies). Under this policy CIT reserves the right to provide to the Australia Government your personal and contact details, course enrolment details and any changes and circumstances of any suspected breach of your student visa conditions.

2. Release of Information The information provided in this Application is required

by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) and the Australian Government Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) as evidence of enrolment in a course registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) – http://cricos.deewr.gov.au

2.1 The offer of place and enrolment of the student must be made in accordance with the provisions of the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act 2000; the ESOS Regulations 2001 and the National Code of Practice for Registration Authorities and Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students (The National Code 2007). 2.2 This information will be made available to other Australian Commonwealth, State or Territory government agencies. Information will include personal and contact details, course enrolment details and changes, and the circumstance of any suspected breach by the student of a student visa condition.

3. Payment of Tuition Fees and Other Expenses Where the course duration is less than

one year, the full fee is payable prior to the commencement of the course. The balance of your fees is payable in advance for each semester. An invoice will be sent to you prior to the commencement of each new semester, it will include the date for payment of your fees. Failure to pay by the due date will attract a late fee of $250 and will be a breach of your student visa requirements. If you fail to pay your fees by the due date because you did not receive your invoice due to a change of address and CIT/ISU were not advised of the change of address, the late fee will still be payable. You are responsible for your tuition fees, text books, stationary and any material fees relevant to your course. You are also responsible for accommodation and living expenses and for the purchase of your own text books and stationery while doing the course. Fees are correct at the time of offer but are subject to review on an annual basis.

4. Overseas Student Health Cover As a condition of your Student Visa, you must maintain health insurance cover by an approved Overseas Student Health Cover Scheme for the duration of your visa. CIT’s current recommended OSHC insurer is Worldcare. Under Worldcare’s scheme, your health insurance policy will cover you and your dependants against basic medical and hospital expenses in Australia. This cover will be for the duration of your course (or visa). Premiums must be paid before you can be issued with a Confirmation of Enrolment Form (COE). If you have coverage from an alternative OSHC provider, evidence of this coverage must be produced before a COE can be issued.

5. Refund of Tuition Fees ff The Institute will refund all tuition payments if your course is cancelled. ff The Institute will refund all payments other than the Administration fee of A$250 if you are unable to obtain a student visa to arrive in Australia to commence your course. In this case the refund will only be paid if written evidence of the refusal has been provided by the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship or in-country Embassy or High Commission. ff The Institute will refund all tuition payments other than the Administration fee of A$250 (and agent’s fees) if you cancel your enrolment in writing 14 days before the commencement date stated on your Letter of Offer. A refund will not be paid if you fail to give at least 14 days notice of cancellation of our enrolment or if the course commencement date as stated on your Letter of Offer has passed. ff In the case of an English language program where you have already commenced studies, a refund of tuition fees may only be granted if notice in writing of a withdrawal from studies is received 14 days prior to the commencement of the next five week block of studies. In this case, a refund may be granted less an administration fee of A$250 plus agent’s fee if applicable.

ff A refund is not payable if the student has received a letter of offer with discounted English fees when either the student commences their program late or for part time studies to complete their program.

ff Where a student has been granted a deferral of commencement in their course due to a delay in their visa grant, tuition fees paid would be transferred to the subsequent semester. Where the student fails to take up the place in the subsequent semester, a refund of fees will only be granted if the student’s visa is refused. ff In the case of an approved transfer to another Australian Institution, allowable refunds will only be paid to the student. ff No refunds will be paid to third parties. ff All refunds are made in Australian dollars. ff In the case of a refund agreed to by the Institute for a student returning home, the refund will be sent after the Institute is satisfied that you have left Australia. Evidence of travel will be required.

The

7. Cancellation, withdrawal or “fast tracking” of your program You must provide ISU

notice in writing, that you are withdrawing from your program at least 14 days prior to the commencement of each semester. You are still responsible for your fees regardless of whether you enrol in your subjects or not. The term “enrolled” into a program is based on your Letter of Offer and or COE for the duration of your course unless you have formally withdrawn in writing and presented the withdrawal to the ISU as previously advised. Failure to give 14 days notice will mean that you are still responsible to pay the tuition fees for the current semester. If you wish to transfer to another institution within the first 6 months of your principal course, a letter of offer from the new institution will need to be provided with the application to transfer. Requests for transfers must be made in writing to ISU. If the Senior Manager of ISU approves a transfer, this will be in accordance with DIAC Policy and the Institute’s Refund Policy and a letter of release will be issued. No fees will be refunded for the current study period (i.e. semester) if notification has not been given 14 days prior to the commencement date on your letter of offer. If you have paid fees in advance of the current semester a refund maybe granted less any Education Agents commission payable. If you “Fast Track” your program resulting in early completion, the full program fees still apply.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS - Entry Conditions I have read, understood and agree to abide by the following conditions:

1. Student Visa Conditions You must abide by the student conditions of your student

visa relating to fees, course performance, class commitment (and maintain a valid enrolment for your chosen course of study), work rights and good conduct and where applicable the course attendance requirement of 80% at CIT. If you are judged to have not complied with these visa conditions, CIT is required to notify immigration authorities. This may result in cancellation of your student visa and you may be required to return to your own country. You must also notify CIT within 7 days of your arrival in Australia of your current residential address and must advise any changes of address within 7 days. CIT is required by law to keep your residential address so you can be contacted if you do not satisfy course requirements. If you do not abide by this condition, you may not be aware of any such contact by CIT. This situation may lead to the cancellation of your student visa. CIT will monitor your “Academic Performance and Attendance” in accordance with the CIT “International Student Compliance with ESOS Act Policy” (www.cit.edu.au/current/policies). Under this policy CIT reserves the right to provide to the Australia Government your personal and contact details, course enrolment details and any changes and circumstances of any suspected breach of your student visa conditions.

2. Release of Information The information provided in this Application is required

by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) and the Australian Government Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) as evidence of enrolment in a course registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) – http://cricos.deewr.gov.au

2.1 The offer of place and enrolment of the student must be made in accordance with the provisions of the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act 2000; the ESOS Regulations 2001 and the National Code of Practice for Registration Authorities and Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students (The National Code 2007). 2.2 This information will be made available to other Australian Commonwealth, State or Territory government agencies. Information will include personal and contact details, course enrolment details and changes, and the circumstance of any suspected breach by the student of a student visa condition.

3. Payment of Tuition Fees and Other Expenses Where the course duration is less than

one year, the full fee is payable prior to the commencement of the course. The balance of your fees is payable in advance for each semester. An invoice will be sent to you prior to the commencement of each new semester, it will include the date for payment of your fees. Failure to pay by the due date will attract a late fee of $250 and will be a breach of your student visa requirements. If you fail to pay your fees by the due date because you did not receive your invoice due to a change of address and CIT/ISU were not advised of the change of address, the late fee will still be payable. You are responsible for your tuition fees, text books, stationary and any material fees relevant to your course. You are also responsible for accommodation and living expenses and for the purchase of your own text books and stationery while doing the course. Fees are correct at the time of offer but are subject to review on an annual basis.

4. Overseas Student Health Cover As a condition of your Student Visa, you must maintain health insurance cover by an approved Overseas Student Health Cover Scheme for the duration of your visa. CIT’s current recommended OSHC insurer is Worldcare. Under Worldcare’s scheme, your health insurance policy will cover you and your dependants against basic medical and hospital expenses in Australia. This cover will be for the duration of your course (or visa). Premiums must be paid before you can be issued with a Confirmation of Enrolment Form (COE). If you have coverage from an alternative OSHC provider, evidence of this coverage must be produced before a COE can be issued.

5. Refund of Tuition Fees ff The Institute will refund all tuition payments if your course is cancelled. ff The Institute will refund all payments other than the Administration fee of A$250 if you are unable to obtain a student visa to arrive in Australia to commence your course. In this case the refund will only be paid if written evidence of the refusal has been provided by the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship or in-country Embassy or High Commission. ff The Institute will refund all tuition payments other than the Administration fee of A$250 (and agent’s fees) if you cancel your enrolment in writing 14 days before the commencement date stated on your Letter of Offer. A refund will not be paid if you fail to give at least 14 days notice of cancellation of our enrolment or if the course commencement date as stated on your Letter of Offer has passed. ff In the case of an English language program where you have already commenced studies, a refund of tuition fees may only be granted if notice in writing of a withdrawal from studies is received 14 days prior to the commencement of the next five week block of studies. In this case, a refund may be granted less an administration fee of A$250 plus agent’s fee if applicable.

ff A refund is not payable if the student has received a letter of offer with discounted English fees when either the student commences their program late or for part time studies to complete their program.

ff Where a student has been granted a deferral of commencement in their course due to a delay in their visa grant, tuition fees paid would be transferred to the subsequent semester. Where the student fails to take up the place in the subsequent semester, a refund of fees will only be granted if the student’s visa is refused. ff In the case of an approved transfer to another Australian Institution, allowable refunds will only be paid to the student. ff No refunds will be paid to third parties. ff All refunds are made in Australian dollars. ff In the case of a refund agreed to by the Institute for a student returning home, the refund will be sent after the Institute is satisfied that you have left Australia. Evidence of travel will be required.

The

7. Cancellation, withdrawal or “fast tracking” of your program You must provide ISU

notice in writing, that you are withdrawing from your program at least 14 days prior to the commencement of each semester. You are still responsible for your fees regardless of whether you enrol in your subjects or not. The term “enrolled” into a program is based on your Letter of Offer and or COE for the duration of your course unless you have formally withdrawn in writing and presented the withdrawal to the ISU as previously advised. Failure to give 14 days notice will mean that you are still responsible to pay the tuition fees for the current semester. If you wish to transfer to another institution within the first 6 months of your principal course, a letter of offer from the new institution will need to be provided with the application to transfer. Requests for transfers must be made in writing to ISU. If the Senior Manager of ISU approves a transfer, this will be in accordance with DIAC Policy and the Institute’s Refund Policy and a letter of release will be issued. No fees will be refunded for the current study period (i.e. semester) if notification has not been given 14 days prior to the commencement date on your letter of offer. If you have paid fees in advance of the current semester a refund maybe granted less any Education Agents commission payable. If you “Fast Track” your program resulting in early completion, the full program fees still apply.

CIT will monitor your “Academic Performance and Attendance” in accordance with the CIT “International Student Compliance with ESOS Act Policy” (www.cit.edu.au/current/policies). Under this policy CIT reserves the right to provide to the Australia Government your personal and contact details, course enrolment details and any changes and circumstances of any suspected breach of your student visa conditions.

2. Release of Information The information provided in this Application is required

by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) and the Australian Government Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) as evidence of enrolment in a course registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) – http://cricos.deewr.gov.au

2.1 The offer of place and enrolment of the student must be made in accordance with the provisions of the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act 2000; the ESOS Regulations 2001 and the National Code of Practice for Registration Authorities and Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students (The National Code 2007). 2.2 This information will be made available to other Australian Commonwealth, State or Territory government agencies. Information will include personal and contact details, course enrolment details and changes, and the circumstance of any suspected breach by the student of a student visa condition.

3. Payment of Tuition Fees and Other Expenses Where the course duration is less than

one year, the full fee is payable prior to the commencement of the course. The balance of your fees is payable in advance for each semester. An invoice will be sent to you prior to the commencement of each new semester, it will include the date for payment of your fees. Failure to pay by the due date will attract a late fee of $250 and will be a breach of your student visa requirements. If you fail to pay your fees by the due date because you did not receive your invoice due to a change of address and CIT/ISU were not advised of the change of address, the late fee will still be payable. You are responsible for your tuition fees, text books, stationary and any material fees relevant to your course. You are also responsible for accommodation and living expenses and for the purchase of your own text books and stationery while doing the course. Fees are correct at the time of offer but are subject to review on an annual basis.

4. Overseas Student Health Cover As a condition of your Student Visa, you must maintain health insurance cover by an approved Overseas Student Health Cover Scheme for the duration of your visa. CIT’s current recommended OSHC insurer is Worldcare. Under Worldcare’s scheme, your health insurance policy will cover you and your dependants against basic medical and hospital expenses in Australia. This cover will be for the duration of your course (or visa). Premiums must be paid before you can be issued with a Confirmation of Enrolment Form (COE). If you have coverage from an alternative OSHC provider, evidence of this coverage must be produced before a COE can be issued.

5. Refund of Tuition Fees ff The Institute will refund all tuition payments if your course is cancelled. ff The Institute will refund all payments other than the Administration fee of A$250 if you are unable to obtain a student visa to arrive in Australia to commence your course. In this case the refund will only be paid if written evidence of the refusal has been provided by the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship or in-country Embassy or High Commission. ff The Institute will refund all tuition payments other than the Administration fee of A$250 (and agent’s fees) if you cancel your enrolment in writing 14 days before the commencement date stated on your Letter of Offer. A refund will not be paid if you fail to give at least 14 days notice of cancellation of our enrolment or if the course commencement date as stated on your Letter of Offer has passed. ff In the case of an English language program where you have already commenced studies, a refund of tuition fees may only be granted if notice in writing of a withdrawal from studies is received 14 days prior to the commencement of the next five week block of studies. In this case, a refund may be granted less an administration fee of A$250 plus agent’s fee if applicable.

ff A refund is not payable if the student has received a letter of offer with discounted English fees when either the student commences their program late or for part time studies to complete their program.

The

7. Cancellation, withdrawal or “fast tracking” of your program You must provide ISU

notice in writing, that you are withdrawing from your program at least 14 days prior to the commencement of each semester. You are still responsible for your fees regardless of whether you enrol in your subjects or not. The term “enrolled” into a program is based on your Letter of Offer and or COE for the duration of your course unless you have formally withdrawn in writing and presented the withdrawal to the ISU as previously advised. Failure to give 14 days notice will mean that you are still responsible to pay the tuition fees for the current semester. If you wish to transfer to another institution within the first 6 months of your principal course, a letter of offer from the new institution will need to be provided with the application to transfer. Requests for transfers must be made in writing to ISU. If the Senior Manager of ISU approves a transfer, this will be in accordance with DIAC Policy and the Institute’s Refund Policy and a letter of release will be issued. No fees will be refunded for the current study period (i.e. semester) if notification has not been given 14 days prior to the commencement date on your letter of offer. If you have paid fees in advance of the current semester a refund maybe granted less any Education Agents commission payable. If you “Fast Track” your program resulting in early completion, the full program fees still apply.
