There is no refund if:
  • a student does not start the course or leaves the course early
  • a student knowingly applies for a visa, but has a record of previously breaching the UK's immigration law
  • a student does not provide the UK Immigration with evidence of sufficient funds available for his/her studies, or for maintenance and accommodation
