Payment of fees
You will be asked to pay for your course when you enrol, however, if your course fee is being paid by a third party (e.g. your employer) you will be given the appropriate documentation at enrolment. Instalments do not apply when an employer is paying.
Where fees are payable, a student who does not comply with the payment policy, i.e. deposit not paid/missed payment may not be guaranteed a place on the course, but may still be contacted for payment.
For fees of £200 and above a 25% deposit is required on enrolment and the balance is to be paid by direct debit collection in three monthly instalments thereafter. A copy of the FE factsheet is attached here.
Confirmation of past results
If you are wishing to obtain a statement of past results, and have not been enrolled with the College for the present or previous academic year, a fee of £15 is required to cover the administration costs involved.
Refunds of fees
Where the College cancels a course, a refund will be provided.
A learner who is paying fees is able to withdraw from their course within 14 days of the enrolment date; this is known as the cooling off period.
A £15 administration fee is deducted for any refund processed after the cooling off period has passed.
Other refunds by application only.
