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.

In the event where the student wishes to cancel an enrolment, notice of cancellation must be provided in writing and applies from the date it is received by Progressive College at info@progressivecollege.ie


The Student may (unless studying on a student visa) no later than two weeks prior to the commencement of the Programme cancel his or her acceptance by providing Progressive College with written notice. If the Student so cancels their study, the Student’s liability to Progressive College will be limited to payment to the College of a cancellation fee of €100 which may be deducted from any applicable refund. Any refund made by Progressive College will be made to the original payer. Full course fees will be payable if less than two weeks’ notice is given, and no refund will be made in such circumstances. Refunds are not available of any amounts paid for study materials, where the materials have been supplied to the Student.

The Student may (unless studying on a student visa) defer enrolment in the Programme for one academic year, provided Progressive College receives written notice at least two weeks prior to the Programme commencement date (the “Date of Deferment”) and the Student pays a €50 administrative fee at the discretion of the college. The fees or any deposit paid by the Student will not be refunded but will be carried forward to the following academic year. Should the College fees change between the Date of Deferment and the date of commencement of the following academic year the Student will be liable to Progressive College for any additional amount due and must pay it before the commencement of such academic year. Where an applicant has deferred their place on a programme and subsequently does not start the programme on a following intake the fees are not refundable or transferable and will be held in credit to be used by the applicant.
