Where HE learners are self-funding, there is an option to pay course fees in instalments.
- An initial instalment equal to one third (1/3) of the total course fees must be paid at enrolment, with further instalments collected in January and March paid by direct debit. A signed direct debit mandate must be completed on enrolment.
For all courses, any request for variations to the standard instalment plan will be reviewed on a case by case basis and must be agreed by the Finance Director. In cases where courses run for more than one year, fees will be invoiced on an annual basis.
Some learners will be supported financially by their employers. Written confirmation from an employer to invoice them directly for a course fee will be needed at enrolment.
Methods of payment
Payment can be made to reception by cash, cheque or debit/credit card, at:
- Main Campus, Cowbridge Road
- Queens Road
- Cash/cheque only at Cardiff Arts Academy
Non-payment of course fees
Learners who do not pay their course fees may be asked to leave their course. Failure to pay any charges made to learners by the college for any goods or services provided will result in court action being taken to recover the sums outstanding. Debts may be passed to a debt recovery agency for collection.
Failure to pay course fees may also lead to the university withholding certification until all outstanding fees have been paid.
If the college cancels a course, or the course does not start due to a lack of support, every effort will be made to offer an alternative. If no suitable alternative is available, a full refund will be given. If the college reschedules a course for a different time, day or change of site and this is not convenient for the learner, a full refund will be given.
