CONDITIONS OF ENROLMENT FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
RULES AND REGULATIONS
I/We undertake to ensure that the student applying for enrolment at Birkenhead College on this form abides by all the laws of New Zealand, and by the rules of the school.
International Students referred to in these rules are students enrolled at Birkenhead College who do not have permanent residence or citizenship in New Zealand.
The rules of Birkenhead College include:
INSURANCE AND LIABILITY
FEES REFUND CONDITIONS FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
If you withdraw more than 7 days after the course has started, or if you are required to leave for disciplinary or non-attendance reason, a refund will NOT be payable.
In exceptional circumstances, an application for a partial refund may be made to the Principal. The payment and amount of any refund will be at the discretion of the Principal.
An application for refund of fees must be made in writing. You must write to the Principal explaining why you have withdrawn from the course and your reasons for seeking a refund.
If your application is made before the start of your course, your fees will be refunded in full, less the administration charge to cover costs incurred by the school.
Students who gain Permanent Residence status after the course has commenced will not be eligible for a refund unless prior agreement in writing was given at the time of enrolment.
To protect International Students’ tuition fees, these fees will be placed in a separate part of the school’s trust account and drawn down on a term by term basis.
