All requests for a refund must be submitted on the appropriate refund application form and must be accompanied by official documentary evidence of the grounds for the request.
Your course deposit is not refundable.
Refunds apply only to tuition fees and will only be paid to the applicant through an Australian Dollar draft.
The School’s policy on the refund of fees has been determined in accordance with the Education Services for Overseas Student Act 2000 (ESOS Act 2000) and the Education Services for Overseas Student Regulations 2001 (ESOS Regulations 2001). This policy applies to all students irrespective of who pays the fees.
The student must submit the Refund Application before the case is processed. All refunds incur a $250 administration fee except where it is specifically stated. All bank transfer fees will be deducted from the refund
amount.

The following conditions are applied for both the Sydney Actors School and Student defaults. The amount of refund is determined as follows:

TOTAL REFUND OF TUITION FEE 

In the unlikely event that the School is unable to provide the course for which an offer has been made. An alternate offer of a place will be offered at no extra cost to the students as well as the refund option. A total refund will be granted under these circumstances
An offer of a place is withdrawn by the School. (The exception is when the offer was made on the basis of intentional incorrect
information).

Diplomatic Office.

Applications for a total refund on the above grounds must be lodged at least 2 weeks prior to the commencement of the semester for which the offer is made. The student must provide a certified copy of the official letter of visa
application rejection by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) along with their application, in order for the refund application to be approved.

PARTIAL REFUND OF TUITION FEE 

The amount of partial refund is determined as follows. Administrative fees and applicable deductions are applied:

(calculated on a weekly basis as per the semester calendar) minus any
applicable deductions

will be credited on a pro-rata basis towards the tuition fee of the 2nd
course. All other tuition fees paid toward the 1st course will be credited in full towards the tuition fee of the 2nd course. If the credited amount is greater than the total cost of the second amount, the difference will be refunded within 28 days of commencement of the second course

If the School has paid an amount to a representative in relation to recruitment, the refund will be further reduced by that amount.

principle course. Any additional tuition fees, paid beyond the first six (6) months, that are deemed refundable, will be payable back to the student minus any applicable deductions

HOW TO CLAIM A REFUND

Provider Default – Where the refund is generated because of a School default, the School will initiate the refund process on the date of the decision and notify the student within 10 working days from the decision date. A refund letter with calculations showing fees to be refunded will be sent to the student. No administration fee is charged.

Student Refund Request – To claim any refund, you must complete a Refund Application Form and return together with your receipt of course fees and certified copies of any supporting documents (such as Visa rejection letter, etc.) to the School. The refund will be paid in Australian dollars and you will be provided with a letter explaining how the refund was calculated. It will be posted to your address in your home country within 14 days from the receipt of the Refund Application form.

Appeal and Refund Payment – In both situations, the student will have 10 working days to lodge an appeal if he/she is not satisfied with the School’s decision. The payment will be processed within 10 working days from the
end of the appeal period. The refund will be paid in Australian dollars to the person or bank account nominated in the Refund Application Form regardless who initially paid the tuition fee. For overseas refund payment, an international money transfer fee will be deducted from the refund amount. This will vary between banks but is approximately $25.

Change of address and contact details – During the period of your enrolment you are obliged to keep your contact details up to date. All students have to provide the School an email address and we communicate with you using that address. You must inform us of any change of address details, as soon as you change your accommodation arrangements. Failing to inform the School your correct address is a breach of your visa conditions.

Full time study hours – The courses are designed around a full-time study load of 28 hours structured training per week. Depending on the course, hours may vary such as 5 hours per week of self-directed learning. You must maintain consistent attendance which is monitored.

Course progress – You must pass 100% of your units and attend a minimum of 80% of class time. Failing to progress means breaching your student visa conditions.

Working hours – Full time students may seek paid work to a maximum of 40 hours per fortnight (2 weeks) during semester time. You are allowed un-limited work during term breaks or holidays. Working over 40 hours per
fortnight during semester is a serious breach of your student visa conditions. Please refer to https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/trav/stud/more/work-conditions-for-student-visa-holders for more information.

Information sharing – Information collected about you on this form and during your enrolment can be provided, in certain circumstances, to the Australian Governments (both Federal and State levels) and designated authorities and, if relevant, the Tuition Protection Scheme. In other instances information collected during your enrolment can be disclosed without your consent where authorised or required by law, this may include circumstance of any suspected breach by the student of a student visa condition.

Complaints and Appeals – You are entitled to access the Complaints and Appeals process should you be dissatisfied about the course or School decisions. This information is available in the Student Handbook and the
website. You should also be aware that this agreement, and the availability of complaints and appeals processes, does not remove the right of the student to take action under Australia’s consumer protection law.
