Refund of fees

There is a minimum amount of enrolled students required per course before it can run. In the event of a course recruiting insufficient students, we will try to offer you alternatives or, failing that, will automatically refund any monies you have paid. 

Craven College reserves the right to merge or alter the delivery of courses, subject to student numbers. If, as a result of this, the day or time of the course alters to the extent that you are no longer able to attend, we will refund an appropriate proportion of the course fee and any exam/ registration fee paid. In all other cases fees will not be refunded, as per the Fee & Refunds Policy available on our website or on request. If you decide not to continue your studies for any reason, full fees are still payable as set out in our Fees and Refunds Policy. This includes fees payable by direct debit or fees which have been paid for you by your employer or sponsor. 


Please note, due to funding conditions, courses marked with a ‘star’ in the printed prospectus are only fully-funded to those with a North Yorkshire postcode (This is due to local authority funding regulations). Learners without a North Yorkshire postcode who wish to study one of these courses, please contact our Part-time team who will talk you through your available options.
