If transferring to another course there is a transfer fee payable. This needs to be paid immediately otherwise the transfer is not valid – and the booking will be treated as a cancellation.
In the event that a student cancels their place with less than 14 days before the course starts, fees are non-refundable. However, if possible, we will transfer your fee to another suitable course date. Please note that there will be a date transfer fee for each transfer. The transfer fee must be paid immediately for this offer to stand.
Any courses bought as a one-off Special Offer are non-refundable.
