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 passport stamped.
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 passport stamped.
A refund will only be granted in respect of fees which have been paid for 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 course commencement date.
If a Student changes their course of study during their semester, no refunds would 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 exempt from 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.
