International Students Tuition Fees Payment and Refund Policies

Fees Due

The application fee ($150.00) is due with your application and this fee is non-refundable. Other fees, including tuition fees, are due in time for registration. Please refer to your letter of acceptance for details of fees due. Fees vary according to the program of study and time of registration. Late registration fees may be charged if a student registers after the registration deadline indicated in the offer letter.

Tuition Payment Structure

International students are encouraged to pay full fees on registration, however the following table will guide students in making the minimum acceptable fee payment on registration.

On signing the admission acceptance contract, a fee of $500 is due. This fee can be used to offset part of the fees due on registration. Full fee payment on registration will exempt students from future fee increases.

Short programs 6 months or less Full fees paid on registration
Programs over 6 months and up to 1 year Two-thirds of fees paid on registrationOne-third of fees paid within 10 business days in the 7th month

Deferral of Program Start Date

Cambrooks college reserves the rights to defer start date of a program. Information on such deferral must reach the student not less than 14 business days before the originally advertised date. If this notice period is violated, the college will (at the request of the student) refund all fees including the application fee to the student. Such request by the student must reach the college within 5 business days of receipt of deferral information. Where no such request is made, the college will treat it as an acceptance by the student of the new program start date.

In the same vein, the student can (within 14 business days before originally advertised program start date) request to defer admissions to the next run of the program. Any request received less than 14 business days before the program start date shall not be accepted and shall be treated in line with the refund policy below.
