Refund Policy – what happens if I want to cancel?

Students are deemed to be enrolled in a course when they have completed their student declaration and their welcome email has been sent out. Students are encouraged to read the Career Academy Student Policy online to ensure that they are aware of their rights and responsibilities as a student with the Academy. If a student fails to read their student policy in a satisfactory time or wishes to cancel before their student declaration has been signed there enrolment can be cancelled without any charge.


Cancellations within 10 working days of your log in email being sent out will be entitled to a full money back guarantee. Refunds will only be processed on the 20th of the month. If you cancel after this time, you will be liable to pay the full amount outstanding. Requests for course cancellations must be made by contacting the Cancellations Ambassador by calling us.
