To enable us to offer you a place, we need to be in recepit of a deposit. For international transfers, please forward a recepit from the sending bank, which has been translated into English. This will allow a full recording of the transaction.

Refund of fees

International Students Refund of Fees and Fee Deposit Policy Statement

Wirral Met College will not refund course fees other than for reasons of ill-health. If a student chooses to leave the college prior to the end of their course, the student will not receive a refund of fees and will be liable for payment of any outstanding balance of fees. The College Finance Department will actively pursue payment via debt collection agents and court action to recover any outstanding fees.

Students claiming a refund of fees must provide documentary evidence of their health and prove that they are unable to attend college for the remainder of the course. Evidence will be submitted to the College Director for approval and refund.

Fees cannot be transferred to another college or institution, should a student wish to leave Wirral Met College and study elsewhere. In the case of students in the UK on a study visa, the College will notify the Home Office that the student has left his/her course and is no longer studying at Wirral Met College.

Refusal of Visa Application

Visas are refused for a number of reasons; if the student’s visa application is refused they must notify the College and supply evidence of refusal. In the event of a refusal to grant visa/entry clearance the deposit will be refunded, less the sum of £110.

Actions after refusal of visa

If a student is intending to appeal against the refusal of his/her visa they will need to let Wirral Met College know within a week of receiving the refusal. The student should keep the College informed of progress regarding the appeal.

Refund of Deposit

If the student is not intending to appeal or if his/her appeal has been rejected the student or his/her representative should supply the International Student Co-ordinator with a copy of the refusal and statement that they do not intend to appeal or, if applicable, the negative outcome of the appeal.
