Tuition Fee Payment
Please note that the tuition fee does not include charges for books, accommodation, activities, living costs and transport.
The tuition fee must be paid in full at least 6 weeks before the course starts.
- In case of refusal of entry to the UK by the Immigration or Visa Authority, a refund will be granted less a £100 administration fee.
- There is no reduction in fees in the case of a late arrival or early departure from a course.
A refund will NOT be considered if any of the following have occurred:
- The student has broken the law or conditions of his/her visa and is thus required to leave the country as a consequence.
- The student’s visa is revoked as a consequence of not attending the course regularly.
- The student has broken the Terms and Conditions of admission to the college.
- The student wishes to leave the course, without good reason.
All applications for a refund must be made in writing, giving full details of why a refund is being asked for, and should be accompanied by any relevant documentary evidence.
Where a student has paid through an educational advisor or agency, if a refund is granted it will be made to the advisor or agent from whom the student should seek a refund. Where a student has paid to the college directly a refund will be made directly to the student.
Please note that it takes at least 3 weeks to process a request for a refund.
Can you defer your course?
If you are not entitled to a refund, you may wish to return to the college at the start of next academic year to continue studying. This is only possible upon the provision of at least one week’s notice. Pembrokeshire College will notify the Home Office immediately of any course deferrals.

Information provided on this form will be stored on a secure College database, it will be used to process your application and may also be used to provide guidance to you in the future. It will be retained as part of your academic record at the College and also for statistical purposes.
The College makes all reasonable efforts to ensure that the contents of the Students Guide (prospectus) are accurate and to deliver the programmes of study and research opportunities and other services and facilities in the way described in the Guide. The College will provide students with the tuition and learning support and other services and facilities it describes with reasonable skill and care. However, the College shall be entitled, if it reasonably considers it to be necessary, (including in order to manage its resources and pursue its policy of continuous improvement appropriately):
- to alter the timetable, location, number of classes and method of delivery of programmes of study, provided such alterations are reasonable;
- to make reasonable variations to the content and syllabus of programmes of study (including in relation to placements);
- to suspend or discontinue programmes of study;
- to make changes to its regulations, policies and procedures which the College reasonably considers necessary;
- not to provide programmes of study or to combine them with others if the College reasonably considers this to be necessary (for example, because too few students apply to join the programme for it to be viable).
In the unlikely event that the College discontinues or does not provide a programme of study or changes it significantly before it begins:
- the College will inform relevant individuals as soon as is reasonably practicable;
- an individual will be entitled to withdraw his/her application within 14 days of being informed of the change;
- for those individuals that are either enrolled on a course which is discontinued or withdraw their applications under the paragraph above, the College will make an appropriate refund of tuition fees and deposit paid.

The College will not be liable to you for any representations or descriptions in this form, or in any other College documents and publications including website, and/or to you verbally, unless and to the extent confirmed in the terms as outlined above.
The College excludes any liability which it would be unlawful to exclude.
The College will not be liable to you in any manner whatsoever for any failure or delay or for the consequences of any failure or delay in performance of any contract with you if it is due to any event beyond our reasonable control including, without limitation, strikes, lockouts or other industrial action or disputes (whether involving our workforce or any other party), acts of God, pandemic, quarantine or widespread illness (whether affecting our staff/or student body otherwise), governmental requisitioning, emergency planning or provision, war, protest, fire, flood, storm, tempest, explosion and suspected or a threatened act of terrorism, riot, civil commotion, national emergencies, breakdown of plant or machinery or default of suppliers or sub contractors.
