Fees Refund Policy
If the Elizabeth Bence School of Fashion cancels any training session students are entitled to transfer to replacement training sessions at our school.
If students are not granted a Student Visa then all fees will be refunded less the enrolment fee ($A250.00). Students will need to provide evidence from the relevant Australian Government Department that the Visa was refused.
If students withdraw their application for enrolment before the course commences we will refund all fees paid (excluding the $A250.00 enrolment fee).
No refund will be granted to a student whose enrolment is terminated for failure to comply with the Elizabeth Bence School of Fashion’s policies and procedures and the requirements of their visa by DIAC.
After course commencement if students withdraw from the course for whatever reason they will not be entitled to any refund. Every effort will be made to negotiate the transfer of training, at the school’s convenience, in the event of a prolonged illness or personal hardship with the approval of DIAC.
Requests for refund should be made in writing to the Principal with documented evidence of the reason for withdrawal. Eligible refunds will be made within 4 weeks after receipt of the claim.
If the Elizabeth Bence School of Fashion defaults, we will make every effort to transfer the students’ enrolment to another college. If this is unsuitable the school will pay a refund of the total amount of the course money received from the student. This refund will be paid to students within 2 weeks of the default day with a statement explaining how the refund amount has been calculated. The school defaults if the course: does not start on the agreed starting date ceases to be provided before it is completed is not provided in full to the student
This fees refund policy does not remove students’ rights to take further action under the Australian Consumer Protection laws.
The Elizabeth Bence School of Fashion Complaints and Appeals Policy and Procedures do not circumscribe a student’s right to pursue other legal remedies.
