Fee Protection Policy
The income derived from foreign fee paying students must be protected against the possibility of an interruption to the course. Internal procedures assist the school in monitoring income and expenditure to ensure that money is controlled appropriately.
- These fees are separately coded and audited.
- These fees are not spent in advance on the premise that future students will attend the school.
- Fees are accrued forward and the income is spread across the year’s financial reporting.
- Regular reporting to the board details both the income and the expenditure and is monitored closely.
- The board holds sufficient reserves to be able to refund the student’s fees if necessary or because the school is unable to provide or continue a course or programme.
iStudent Complaints is free and independent service established by the Ministry of Education to help international students resolve financial or contractual complaints with their education providers.
Financial and contractual disputes are complaints that involve the terms of your contract to study or complaints that involve money, such as refund requests.
Most complaints can be resolved directly with education providers, however iStudent Complaints is here to help if you cannot reach an agreement together.
