In the event that a visa is not secured before the start of the program, students will be offered the option to defer their enrolment to the next intake or receive a full refund.

Students who withdraw from the program after it has started may be eligible for a refund on the portion of their studies that they have not yet completed. Any completed courses are non-refundable.
