Our flexible training programmes can be delivered at one of our centres or in the workplace. A detailed listing of our courses can be found on pages 92 to 94.

approach the awarding body on your behalf for a refund • We cannot guarantee that refunds will be sanctioned and cannot refund on behalf of any awarding body • Should the awarding body make a refund, a deduction for administration charges will be made before authorising a refund by the College.

Tuition Fee Refunds

88

Tuition fees are only refunded in the following cases: • If the course is not offered by the College in 2010/2011 (for example, because insufficient numbers are enrolled on the course) • If there is a significant change in the published arrangements for the course (for example, the day of attendance is changed, making it impossible for you to attend the course, and there is not another suitable alternative for you)

• If you are offered a provisional place on a course and do not meet the specified conditions for entry. In such cases we hope it will be possible to identify a suitable alternative course of study for you. (Provisional places are normally offered to students who attend full-time courses and are awaiting the results of recent examinations) • If you are unable to attend for other reasons – for example serious illness, appropriate evidence will be required • For international students refused a visa, we’ll need to see the original refusal letter. If we make a refund, we will deduct a proportion of the fee relating to the amount of the course that you’ve attended. We also reserve the right to make an administrative charge of 10% of the total course fee. We will not refund any deposit made. All fee and course information is accurate at the time of going to press.
