Students can get a New Zealand education without travelling outside their own country.
Students who paid their fees in full at enrolment will receive a refund less $300 (for the initial pack costs) which the student retains. After this time we both commit our full energies to helping you progress to graduation. Students who paid only $300 deposit may keep their initial package of course materials, but they get no refund.
If you decide not to proceed with the course for any reason, you may cancel. If you have paid the deposit only and intended to pay monthly thereafter, there is no refund, but you get to keep the course materials received. Students who pay their course fee in full at enrolment and then cancel within the 28 day period, will receive a refund less course deposit and keep the course materials received. After 28 days there are no refunds.
The Institute cannot accept responsibility for any changes in the student’s personal circumstances or work commitments once the course has commenced. (Earthquakes excepted) However, we can hold your course open for you to complete it within two years.
When you graduate you will receive a Certificate or Diploma to hang on your wall and add to your CV. Our Institute is affiliated with the Australian College QED and NZIBS certificates/diplomas are recognised in both countries.
This will include your first tutorial(s), assignment cover sheets, question sheets, and a stationery starter pack, all presented in a smart folder. Further tutorials will follow by mail at regular intervals or as requested by you.
