Whereas the college understands that unforeseen circumstances may compel a student to withdraw from a course, students should understand that the college makes decisions as to resource levels for a course (including teaching resources) based upon the number of students who register for it at the commencement of the course.

The college accepts no obligation to refund any fee or part of any fee paid in respect of any programme or service provided by the college.

Under no circumstances will the college refund the deposit, or any part of the deposit paid in respect of a students’ registration for a programme, save in the event that the college is unable to run the course registered for.

Please note that Progressive College reserves the right to cancel or re-schedule any course at any time. In the unlikely event of cancellation your deposit/fees will be refunded. Progressive College also reserves the right to re-schedule the start dates of all courses.

Deposits: All deposits are non-refundable.

International Learners

a. Fees will not be refunded except under exceptional circumstances, such as visa refusal.
b. Should an initial visa case be refused we reserve the right to appeal the case.
c. If a visa is refused all course fees will be refunded – less any bank charges up to €150 registration fees– within 20 days as per guidelines with ILEP.
d. Our method of refund will be by wire transfer to the account from which the funds were received.
e. Please note carefully that we reserve the right NOT TO REFUND FEES should the visa authorities identify fraudulent documents as part of the application.

If a student visa application has been refused, then the amounts paid, including deposits and unutilised fees, will be refunded less an administration charge of €150 (plus any courier and transfer charges) on production of the following documents:
• original copy of the visa refusal letter.
• Student’s passport showing both the photograph and signature
• where the payer was not the Student, an original authority letter from the Student authorising the repayment to the payer.

Note: This applies only to visa applications made outside Ireland and does not apply to International Students already resident in Ireland who are applying for renewal visas. For International Students already resident in Ireland, fees will not be refunded under any circumstances after commencement of the course. Where a visa is required to be renewed during a College Programme of study, it is the responsibility of the Student to confirm with the relevant authorities that the renewal application will be approved.
