Our Money Back Guarantee is for your protection

Student fees are for the duration of the course, which is deemed to be one year following your starting date. If you have not completed your course by this time, a further term of studentship can be granted at the discretion of the Principal. Normally the course can be extended at no extra cost but additional fee may be required based on the student’s performance and consistency. Please ensure that you contact the office within the one-year period to arrange an extension.

Fees do not include computer or photographic equipment. A GST receipt will be issued for all fees paid.
