Fees and Refunds
Students who cancel their enrolment part way through a training program must notify Brighton College Pty Ltd in writing via email or letter at the soonest opportunity. Students who cancel their enrolment after a training program has commenced will not be entitled to a refund of fees. Students are advised to consider alternative options such as requesting to suspend their enrolment and re-commencing in another scheduled training program.
Students, who give the notice to cancel their enrolment 10 business days or more prior to the commencement of a program, will be entitled to a full refund of fees paid. This policy complies with the Australian Consumer Law required a statutory cooling off period for the sale of goods and services. It is a requirement under the Standards for Registered Training Organisations that an RTO must allow the minimum statutory cooling off period applicable for the jurisdiction in which they operate. Australian Consumer Law introduced in 2010 has made this consumer protection consistent in all States and Territories.
Students who give the notice to cancel their enrolment 9 business days or less prior to the commencement of a program will be entitled to a 70% refund of fees paid. The amount retained (30%) by Brighton College Pty Ltd is required to cover the costs of staff and resources which will have already been committed based on the student’s initial intention to undertake the training.
A student who wishes to cancel their enrolment must give notice in writing. This may be via email or letter. The student is also to be advised of other options such as suspending the enrolment and re-commencing in another scheduled training program.
