Tuition fees are not refundable. However,
- For International Students resident overseas fees will only be refunded if the visa application has been refused as outlined in the ECM College Terms and Conditions.
- For International Students already resident in Ireland, fees will not be refunded under any circumstances after commencement of the course. Where a visa is required to be renewed during the ECM programme of study it is the responsibility of the student to check with the relevant authorities that the renewal application will be approved.
- Course commencement and start date is subject to student numbers.
- All students for whom English is not a first language will be required to sit an English language test prior to commencement of their course. Students whose level of English does not meet the required standard will be redirected to an English language programme appropriate to their English language standard. Tuition fees for this additional English language tuition will be charged to the student. Upon successful completion of exams students may be allowed to commence their original first choice programme, subject to availability.
The majority of our courses are accredited by international awarding bodies such as CTH (Confederation of Tourism and Hospitality), ICM (Institute of Commercial Management), Cambridge ESOL and EDI all those recognised worldwide.

CANCELLATION AND DEFERRAL:
The Student may (unless studying on a student visa) no later than two weeks prior to the commencement of the Programme cancel his or her acceptance by providing the College with written notice. If the Student so cancels their study, the Student's liability to the College will be limited to payment to the College of a cancellation fee of €150 which may be deducted from any applicable refund. Any refund made by the College will be made to the original payer. Full course fees will be payable if less than two weeks' notice is given and no refund will be made in such circumstances. Refunds are not available of any amounts paid for study materials, where the materials have been supplied to the Student.
The Student may (unless studying on a student visa) defer enrolment in the Programme for one academic year, provided the College receives written notice at least two weeks prior to the Programme commencement date (the "Date of Deferment") and the Student pays a €50 administrative fee. The fees or any deposit paid by the Student will not be refunded but will be carried forward to the following academic year. Should the College fees change between the Date of Deferment and the date of commencement of the following academic year the Student will be liable to the College for any additional amount due and must pay it before the commencement of such academic year.
Should the Student defer enrolment in the Programme and should the Programme not be continued by the College such following academic year, the College's liability to the Student will be limited to a refund of the applicable fees paid by the Student for the Programme less the €50 administrative fee referred to above.
