Fees should be paid by bank transfer where possible. It should be noted there are sometimes charges incurred by the college bankers which must be borne in full by the student. Overseas students applying for full-time courses cannot change to part-time status on arrival or during their studies at College. Other conditions of booking may apply depending on the course you apply for. Please refer to the Terms and Conditions below:
Terms & Conditions – Booking Changes, Refunds and Cancellations
We require a minimum of four weeks’ notice for any changes to a course booking.
If a visa application is refused and a course cancelled as a result, we will refund fees excluding a £500 administration charge. For a refund of fees in cases where a visa has been refused, a signed visa refusal letter from the British Embassy or consulate must be provided and original copies of admission letters returned to the College.
Course start dates may be delayed to allow for visa re-applications but Sunderland College must be informed in writing before the planned starting date. If a student does not inform Sunderland College in advance that they will not be arriving, the deposit or any fees paid will be forfeit and no refund made.
If you have already entered the UK and have obtained a student visa, there is no refund available. If you have obtained a visa through submitting documents provided by Sunderland College and you do not attend classes at Sunderland College, the Home Office in the UK will be informed that you are not following a course of study at Sunderland College.
If a course is cancelled by Sunderland College, we will refund tuition fees in full. Should you wish for the College to hold tuition fees paid this must be in prior consultation with the College. In such cases the College will hold tuition fees for a maximum period of 12 months before the fees are forfeit.
Refunds and changes are only normally agreed to under extenuating circumstances. Application must be made to the Director of Finance with supporting documentary evidence. Appeals can then be made to the Principal.
