Students will only be granted access to online content once the full payment is made. Failure to make
payments in the above timeframe will result in student access being withdrawn and, if the full fee is not
received, all course fees paid up to that point will be non-transferable and non-refundable.
Different terms apply when students avail of a finance option, and the aforementioned terms can be referred to in the student’s individual contract with Code Institute.
Any cancellations four weeks (28 days) prior to course commencement will not be subject to a cancellation charge. Any cancellations up to two weeks (14 days) prior to course commencement will be subject to a cancellation charge equal to 50% of the overall fee payable. Any cancellations within 2 weeks prior to course commencement with be subject to 100% cancellation charge equal to 100% of the overall fee payable.
Refunds will only be granted in extenuating circumstances such as medical incapacity or bereavement, at
the sole discretion of the Programme Manager. Extenuating circumstances refer to unforeseen events which
may affect a student’s ability to attend the course. Such circumstances include serious illness &/or
hospitalisation, accident, immediate family bereavement or other serious personal circumstances.
Foreseen events such as sporting, cultural or work commitments are not considered extenuating circumstances. Supporting documentation e.g. medical certificate, police statement etc. must be provided. In such circumstance deferral may be offered as an alternative. The amount refunded will be in proportion to how far you have progressed through the course. Please allow a minimum of 7 weeks for a refund to be processed.
Students who wish to defer their place on a course will be charged an administration fee of €250 (two hundred and fifty euro’s). If deferral is requested 2 weeks prior to course commencement then no charge will be applicable. A deferral can be granted without additional costs due to extenuating circumstances with supporting documentation and at the sole discretion of Programme Manager.
Code Institute reserves the right to refuse tuition fees and reserves the right to deny any applications.
Online Students are entitled to a cooling off period of 14 days, which begins on the day that access to
the course is granted. If a student decides they do not want to commence the course during this period a
refund may be granted. Once Class Network (Learning Management System – LMS) is accessed by a student, this
is an indication of use of service and acceptance of terms and conditions, and as a result at this point no
refunds will be issued, even within the standard cooling off period of 14 days. After the cooling off
period no refunds will be issued whether Class Network (LMS) has been accessed or not.
The access period for the mentored online programme is for 60 weeks. After this time the users access to the LMS will be revoked and as a result at this point no refunds will be issued.
Students who wish to defer their participation on an online course may do so in extreme circumstances for a maximum period of 12 months. Full course fees will need to be remitted before students can defer participation and deferral is at the discretion of Code Institute. Course participation will not be deferred while an outstanding fee remains on the student account.
Students will be held accountable to their agreed timetable. Students who are not committed to progressing on the course and repeatedly fail to submit an acceptable milestone project will be removed from the course. Students with mitigating circumstances will not be removed. Such circumstances may include serious illness &/or hospitalisation, accident, immediate family bereavement or other serious personal circumstances.
Students need to submit all milestone projects on time based on the personal schedule they have committed to. Generally, students will be charged a fee of €50 per resubmission. However, the first resubmission of each milestone project is free for students on the Structured Learning track who are committed to a schedule and have submitted on time. An additional two-month period is available to all Structured Learning students once they complete the course curriculum and have submitted all projects on time. This is an opportunity for students to re-submit projects and improve their overall portfolio. The improved grade will go towards their final grade.
