Tuition Fee Refund Policy

Refund of Tuition Fees, for students who decide to withdraw or suspend their application and/or studies, is processed according to the following criteria:

  • If the students’ documents have not been submitted to the Ministry of Education and the Migration Department in Cyprus for approval, then the Educational Organisation shall return 80% of the tuition fees that have already been paid.
  • If the students’ documents have been submitted to the Ministry of Education and the Migration Department in Cyprus for approval, then the Educational Organisation shall return 50% of the tuition fees that have already been paid.
  • If a student has received his/her visa but has not travelled to Cyprus then the Educational Organisation shall return 30% of the tuition fees that have already been paid.
  • If a student has received his/her visa and has already travelled to Cyprus then the Educational Organisation shall not return any tuition fee amount.
  • If the Migration department declines to issue a visa for a student on the grounds that his/her documents are not authentic (fake) then the Educational Organisation shall not return any tuition fee amount.
  • In the event of Force Majeure after the students’ documents have been submitted to the Ministry of Education and the Migration Department in Cyprus or after a visa has been issued, the Educational Organisation shall not refund any tuition fees. Instead, the student will be expected to resume the application procedure or arrive/begin his/her studies as soon as the circumstances allow.

Application, registration fees and other bank charges are non-refundable. The date on which the student submits his/her written application to the College is considered the day of the student’s decision not to accept the position offered to him/her or to end his/her studies and request a refund of the tuition fees.

If a student decides to withdraw or terminate his/her studies before the expiration of his/her registration, then (s)he must request the refund of the Visa Guarantee within 30 days. The Visa Guarantee shall NOT be refunded if:
