Short Courses Terms and Conditions

RMIT University's Short Courses Terms and Conditions


  1. For individuals, the course fee is payable at the time of enrolment.
  2. For organisations, we will issue an invoice when a purchase order or letter of authority is received by us. The invoices must be paid in full either within 7 days of the invoice date or prior to course commencement, whichever comes first.
  3. Promotional codes may only be redeemed once per person during the relevant promotional period to provide a course fee discount. The total amount of all applicable discounts may not exceed 25% of the course fee. You must tell us prior to payment if you are eligible for any discounts.


  1. You may transfer to another available course at no cost, provided you make a request at least five business days before the course starts. An administration fee of 10% of the course fee will apply if a request is made after that time but before the course starts.
  2. We will not accept any changes in enrolments, including transfers, after the course starts.
  3. If you are unable to attend the course you are enrolled in, another person may attend the course in your place for the entire course at no extra charge, provided that:
    1. you let us know in writing before the course starts; and
    2. you and that person respectively agree to any terms and conditions which may apply in this case.


  1. You may cancel your course booking provided you make a request at least five business days before the course starts. RMIT University may request that you forward refund requests to us in writing. Refunds will only be credited to the original funding source or via other means as agreed by RMIT University. An administration fee of 50% of the course fee will apply if a request is made after that time but before the course starts.
  2. There will be no refunds after the course starts.
  3. Note: If you have previously transferred from another course, then the course start date will be the start date of the course you were first enrolled in.


  1. Full course fee is payable for non-attendance.
  2. We may change the course details or cancel any course including those with insufficient enrolments or because of circumstances beyond our reasonable control. A refund or alternative courses will be offered to you in these circumstances.
  3. Additional conditions of enrolment may apply to some courses including online, flexible, blended and distance delivery courses.
  4. Our privacy policy outlines information relating to the collection and handling of your personal information by us. A copy of the policy is available on our website and to you on request.
  5. Nothing in these terms and conditions will affect your statutory rights, and nothing in these terms and conditions will limit or exclude our liability for death or personal injury arising through negligence, fraudulent misrepresentation, or anything else that cannot be excluded or limited by us by law.
  6. To the extent permitted by law, we are not liable for any indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages or otherwise (including without limitation loss of income or revenue, loss of business, loss of profits or contracts, loss of opportunity, loss of anticipated savings, loss of data, loss of goodwill), however arising and whether caused by tort, breach of contract or otherwise, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
