    Refund Policy

    St Bede’s College has a no refund policy. If the student withdraws from his course of study before the course completion date, he will NOT receive a refund of school fees except in exceptional circumstances. In such cases, the parents should write to the Director of International Students explaining what the exceptional circumstances are: however, the College’s decision is final.

    If the application is made before the start of the course, fees will be refunded less:

  • an administration fee
  • costs to the school already incurred for tuition
  • components of the fee already committed for the duration of the course, including appropriate portions of salaries of teachers and support staff (if applicable)
  • any other costs already incurred.
  • No refund will be made to a student who is excluded from the College by the Board of Trustees.
    No refund will be made to an International student who changes visa status to one which entitles them to regular/domestic student status, after one month from date of payment.
