Refunds Policy - Radcliffe College

Payment & Refunds

Paying fees is an essential part of the registration procedure at Radcliffe College. If your fee is £1500 or above, you can choose to pay in full, or in two installments (if you are a full time student).

The students are normally asked to pay £2,000 as an initial payment and £250 non-refundable registration fee in the form of a bank draft. If the tuition fee is less than £1,000 students are required to pay the whole amount.

Details of the installment plan and acceptable methods of payment are given below. Radcliffe College recommends that you make payment in full and in advance.

One year course or more

If you are a full-time student in attendance for the full academic session and your fee is £2000 or more then you can opt to pay your fee in four installments per academic year. However, the first payment should be not less than £2000 and the remaining amount can be paid throughout the academic year via a flexible schedule agreed with the Radcliffe College accounting department.

Six month’s course

If you are a full-time student in attendance for a six month’s session and your fee is £1000 or more then you can opt to pay your fee in two installments. However, the first payment should be not less than £1000 and the remaining amount can be paid before completion of the course via a flexible schedule agreed with the Radcliffe College accounting department.

Students may pay their first deposit by cheque, cash, bank transfer or bank draft. Payments made by cheque must be allowed 3 to 5 working days in order to issue enrolment documents.

Radcliffe College recommends that you make installment payments via direct debit payable from a UK bank.

Fee Refund Policy

Radcliffe College assumes that all prospective students will have thought long and hard about taking up a course and therefore applying for admission.

However, no matter how well intentioned one is, Radcliffe College understands that there are many reasons for wishing to withdraw from a course, both before and after courses have commenced.

Consequently, Radcliffe College Policy on refund of fees upon withdrawal is as follows:

No refund is permitted or shall be made if a student fails to submit the application form before the expiry of the CAS. This also applies if a student withdraws the application without permission from the college.

No refund is permitted or shall be made when a student withdraws once classes have commenced.

In case where a prospective student is refused a student visa and it is apparent that this is due to an act or omission on their part, then no refund will be given. The College expects a student to lodge an appeal with the Home Office where they are refused a student visa. Where the appeal is successful the College will consider the position.

No refund is permitted or shall be made if a student enters the UK on a student visa obtained on the basis of the College’s letters of acceptance and enrolment.

No refund is permitted or shall be made when a student decides to leave Radcliffe College for whatever reason after an extension of a student visa has been obtained through Radcliffe College facilitation.

Where it is proved that a prospective student has submitted a forged document or documents with a view to obtain entry clearance, such a prospective student will not have his or her fees refunded by the College.

Refund Procedure

Whenever a student or prospective student decides to initiate a request for a refund, the request must be made in writing to the Registrar.

Lead Time

Although Radcliffe College will always endeavour to respond to refund requests with sense of urgency, under normal circumstances it takes up to six weeks to process a refund.

NOTE

All students registering on any course of study at Radcliffe College are required to sign and return a notice of acceptance in the terms and conditions of any offer of a place made. In the unlikely and certainly exceptional circumstance that the signed form is unforthcoming or otherwise misplaced, misfiled, destroyed in error, etc, any payment made on account of fees shall be construed as an acceptance.
