Refund Policy

The school assumes that all prospective students will have made a committed decision to study a given course before applying for admission. Consequently, the school policy on the refund of any fees upon withdrawal from a course is as follows:


I. No refund will be made when a student withdraws less than two weeks prior to the course start date or once a study visa is approved.
II. No refund is permitted or shall be made when a student decides to leave the school for whatever reason.
III. No refund will be made if a student enters the country on an international student status obtained on the basis of the school's Acceptance Letter.
IV. No refund will be made when relevant authorities refuse student entry to the country, refuse student immigration permission extension, or ask the student to leave the country.
V. In cases of Study Visa renewals, it is the student’s responsibility to check with relevant authorities that their visa application is eligible for approval.
VI. For international students applying from a Visa Required Country, please note that in cases of visa refusals, the student must provide an original copy of the refusal letter from the appropriate immigration authority or Irish embassy, within 90 days from the refusal date. From a non-Visa Required Country, the student must provide a full copy of the passport (all pages).
VII. For student bookings through agents, the student should direct the refund request to the agent. DCAS policies and T&Cs still apply.
VIII. Where it is proved that a prospective student has submitted a forged document(s) with a view to registering as a student, fees will not
be refunded by the school and relevant authorities will be notified.
IX. An administration fee of €250 applies to all approved refunds.
X. Medical insurance and Exam fees are non-refundable after a student arrival in Ireland (for international students on their 1st Study Visa) or after Study Visa documents are issued (for local students on their 2nd or 3rd study visas).
XI. Accommodation charges and fees are non-refundable if cancelled with less than 28 days’ notice.
XII. Registration fees are non-refundable.
All refund requests must be made in writing through the Refund Request Form available in the link below, along with supporting documents. It takes 20 working days to process a refund, once a request is approved and the approval is communicated to the student.

Deferral Policy

I. Course deferrals are only accepted up to two weeks prior to a new student’s arrival date in Ireland.
II. Course deferrals are not available for students studying on a student visa, except in cases where the student visa decision is pending, or
on appeal. In such cases, the school can defer the enrolment until a final decision on the immigration status has been reached.
III. Students not studying on a student visa may defer enrolment on the programme within 12 months, provided the school receives
written notice at least two weeks prior to the student’s start date.
IV. In cases of deferral, any fees or deposits paid by the student will be carried forward to the following year. Should fees (tuition, exams,
accommodation, insurance, registration) change between the date of deferment and the course commencement, the student must make
up that difference in fees, prior to the school issuing an updated Acceptance Letter.
V. Any credit notes held on student or agent accounts will remain valid for a maximum of 12 months from the original booked course start
date; they will thereafter become void.
