Student Fee Refund Policy

Capernwray NZ is under no obligation to refund fees once training has commenced but we follow the NZ Government requirements for Independent Tertiary Establishments, which are as follows: 

Courses between 5 and 12 weeks duration (ABS course and up to one term at Monavale)
Up until the end of the fifth day of the course, a refund less 25% of the total course cost will be made if a student withdraws and has already paid his/her fees.

Courses of 13 weeks duration or greater (Monavale and Monavale+ABS courses)
Up until the end of the tenth day of the course, a withdrawn student who has paid their course fees is entitled to a refund less up to 25% of the total fee, based on actual costs incurred by the school.

All student fees are deposited in a trust account dedicated for this purpose and supervised by independent trustees. This is to ensure security of student fees.

After the standard  refund period for the course, the School is under no obligation to reimburse students for fees in the event of withdrawal or dismissal from the course, and will not ordinarily do so.

However in exceptional circumstances (eg health, family bereavement) the school will at its discretion reimburse a proportion of the fees. This will be to a maximum of one third of unused proportion of the fees paid, which reflects the variable cost savings (essentially food and utilities) from the largely fixed costs associated with running the school.

Re-imbursement will normally be made between one to three months after the withdrawal depending on application to the trustees and the standard drawdown timings.
