Writen notice must be given if the student wishes to cancel the booking.
The administration fee of £60.00 is non-refundable under any circumstances.
Cancellation policy before course start date:
If a student cancels a booking with more than 2 weeks notice, the School will give the student a credit note equal to the paid fees.
If a student cancels a booking with less than 2 weeks notice, the School will give the student a credit note of 50% of the paid fees.
The credit will remain valid for courses taking place within 12 months after the date of issue of the credit note. The credit note is not transferable to any other person.
Accommodation is non refundable.
If the student cancels the course because the application for a Student Visitor Visa has been refused, the student will need to provide documentary evidence from the relevant embassy before any refund can be considered, and must return the letter of enrolment. Once we have received a copy of the visa refusal letter, including the date of refusal, plus our original letter of enrolment, at least 7 days prior to the start date we will refund the already paid fees except the administration fee. If NISE receives the original form given by the embassy less than 7 days before the start date, a cancellation charge equivalent to 1 week course fees and accommodation will be deducted from the refund.
If the student has booked and paid through an agent, the refund will be made to the agent.
Cancellation policy after start date:
Tuition fees for early departures, absences, misconduct or illness once the course has started are not refundable.
Fees are non-transferable. This means that the fees cannot be transferred to another person.
It is advisable that all students take out their own personal insurance to cover any unforeseen circumstances.
Cancellation by the School:
Sometimes it is agreed between the School and a student that it would be beneficial for the student to be moved to another School course. When this happens only a course of at least equivalent cost will be offered by the School.
The School reserves the right to cancel a course, or make changes to course arrangements, without liability, if forced to do so for reasons beyond its control. If this happened, the School would seek to offer alternative agreements or dates.
If the School cancelled a course booked and paid for by a student in accordance with these terms other than for reasons beyond its control, and did not offer an alternative acceptable to the student, the School would pay compensation as follows:
- When the cancellation is before the start of the course, compensation equal to the fees paid by the student or
- Where the cancellation is after the start of the course, a credit note equal to the paid fees.
