Review our information about the Refund Policy. We hope it won’t be necessary, but if it is, we have a process to solve it.
See below our grounds for a refund or partial refund of fees:
A. Irish Study Visa extension refusal (for students who are not successful in obtaining their visa). Any application for a refund must be made in writing and must be accompanied by both a copy of the rejection letter from the GNIB and a copy of their stamped passport.
Please note: the rejection letter issued by the GNIB will be evaluated by the Academy in-order to assess grounds for any refund. All original letters issued by the Academy along with the student’s GNIB card must be returned to SEDA administration before any refund can be considered.
B. Illness or disability suffered after the student’s enrolment has been confirmed. In any such instance, a doctor’s certificate would be required to confirm.
C. Upon arrival to Dublin, should any student be refused access into Ireland for any reason, any application for a refund must be made in writing and be accompanied by both a copy of the rejection letter from the GNIB and a copy of their stamped passport.
Please note: the rejection letter issued by the GNIB will be evaluated by the Academy in order to assess grounds for any refund.
A refund will only be granted in respects of fees that have been paid for during the most recent year, in which (a) or (b) occurs.
There is no automatic right to a refund of fees if, at any time, a student changes his/her mind about studying at SEDA.
After course commencement, any student requiring to submit a refund request for any reason other than those specifically detailed above (a, b or c), will be required to have achieved a minimum attendance of 85% in accordance with GNIB (student visa requirements) at the time of request.
If a student withdraws after course commencement, no refund will be given.
All course cancellations must be made in writing, using the Academy’s “Tuition fees Refund” form before the course commencement date.
If a Student changes their course of study during their semester, no refunds will be given where the revised course involves fewer subjects.
Students that are found to have provided incorrect information, resulting in their visa being refused, shall be ineligible for any form of refund.
Whilst course commencement and completion dates are not expected to change, the Academy reserves the right to alter any previously detailed dates in order to facilitate or improve the provision of any course and any associated examination.
Those changes will in no way affect the other terms and conditions of the student’s contract with the Administration.
Should a change be necessary, the administration will not be liable to provide any form of compensation or refund.
Please note: an Administration fee of €250 will be deducted from all refunds given.
