When an applicant accepts a place offered by Asthma Australia and pays the fees, it means a binding contract is created between the student and Asthma Australia. Notification of cancellation/withdrawal from unit/s of competency, withdrawal or deferral from a course of study must be made in writing to Asthma Australia

In the case of cancellation/withdrawal, the following cancellation fees will apply:

  • —Students who give notice to cancel their enrolment more than 10 days prior to the commencement of a program will be entitled to a full refund of fees paid.
  • —Students who give notice to cancel their enrolment fees less than 10 days prior to the commencement of a program will be entitled to a 75% refund of fees paid.

The amount retained (25%) by Asthma Australia is required to cover the cost of staff and resources which will have already been committed based on the students initial intention to undertake the training. Enrolments into short courses (one day) can also be transferred to an alternative date in cases where there is one available.

  • —Students who cancel their enrolment after a training program has commenced will not be entitled to a refund of fees.

There is no charge for a student to transfer to another course with Asthma Australia. If Asthma Australia cancels a course, then a full refund will be made available to whoever paid that course fee.

Discretion may be exercised by the Training Manager in all situations, if the student can demonstrate that extenuating or significant personal circumstance led to their withdrawal.

In these cases, the student should be offered a full credit toward the tuition fee in another scheduled program in-lieu of a refund. The Training Manager may also authorise a refund of tuition fees if the circumstances require it.

Where refunds are approved, the refund payment must be paid to the student within 14 days from the time the student gave written notice to cancel their enrolment. Tuition refunds are to be paid via electronic funds transfer using the authorised bank account nominated by the student on the Refund Request Form.

Note. If for any reason Asthma Australia is unable to fulfil its service agreement with a student, Asthma Australia must refund the student’s proportion of fees paid for services not delivered or make alternative arrangements.
