If you paid your fees via credit card, authorised refunds will be processed to the same credit card. If you paid using another method, any refundable amount will be paid to your nominated bank account.

If you have applied for a release, please wait for the application to be finalised before applying for a refund.
All applications for refund (except if you have been refused a visa) must be submitted within 12 months of the Program commencement date listed on your Offer Letter. Applications submitted after this time are not eligible for a refund.
