All students must pay their tuition fees and the invoiced accommodation fees before they commence their studies at Bexhill College.
Once a place has been accepted, if a student decides to withdraw their application for whatever reason, the College will refund the tuition fees and the accommodation fees but the College will withhold an amount of £300 for administration. Any Deposit paid for accommodation will also be withheld. Any refund due will be processed within 30 working days.
If a student fails to get a visa or decides to withdraw after their Visa has been granted, the College will refund the tuition fees less an administration fee of £300. The student must apply for the refund in writing, enclosing a copy of the Rejection/Acceptance letter from the UKVI as appropriate. Any refund due will be processed within 30 working days.
The College reserves the right to keep more of the tuition fees if there is any suspicion that the visa application was not genuine or if a “Visa refusal” is issued by the UKVI.
If on arrival, the College is unable to accept a student on the course of their choice, an appropriate alternative will be offered and a refund will not be given.
In the unlikely event that all of the courses a student has chosen do not run, an appropriate alternative will be offered. If an alternative cannot be offered, a refund of the tuition fees and the accommodation fees will be given less a £300 administration fee.
If a student decides to return home permanently before the end of their course for any reason, e.g. illness and the College remains open, there will be no refund of tuition under any circumstances as a place is held for the student in the class.
The College will be able to refund the Host Family accommodation fees less any notice period required to the Host family. Please also see T&C of Host Family Accommodation. Any refund due will be processed within 30 days.
A refund of any accommodation fees for residence in the student accommodation cannot be given as there is a 45-week agreement in place. Please also see T&C of Student Accommodation.
If a student needs to return home temporarily due to illness, hospital treatment, family emergency, etc., there will be no refund of tuition or accommodation as the place in any accommodation is kept and a place in the class is held.
If a student is asked to leave the College before completing their course due to unacceptable behaviour as defined by the College, no refund will be given.
Bexhill College strongly recommends that personal insurance is taken out to cover any loss as a result of illness of the student.
Delayed travel or late arrival onto courses can be arranged on request. However, there will be no reduction in tuition fees as the student can access the tuition online. There will also be no reduction of the fees paid for the accommodation/host family place as the room is held for the student.
