Viable Programmes

All other programmes must remain viable and be self-financing; therefore, NO REFUNDS, under any circumstances, are available once a programme commences. We regret we cannot entertain any other requests for refunds. Once a programme commences participants cannot defer their place on that programme to another term. It is the responsibility of the participants to inform themselves of the programme commencement date, content, programme duration, etc.


In all cases, fees must be paid before classes commence. Under no circumstances can learners attend a class without an official receipt.

Applications received after the commencement date of a programme will only be accepted at the sole discretion of the Director of Adult Education.
