GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS These Terms and Conditions are applicable to all students studying at Kaplan Higher Education Pty Ltd 85 124 217 670 trading as Murdoch Institute of Technology CRICOS 03127E (PRV12030) (‘MIT’). 1.1. Policies and procedures: All MIT students are subject to the policies and procedures that are published on our website (www.
murdochinstitute.wa.edu.au/policies/) and in the MIT student handbook, including those dealing with student misconduct, assessment, progression, enrolment deferral and cancellation, complaints and appeals, and refund. Students must review these policies and procedures and ensure they understand and comply with the most up to date version of our policies and procedures at all times. 1.2. Course absences and start dates: All students are expected to attend class from the first day of their course. No refund is given for time missed due to arrivals after the published course commencement date, vacations, absences or public holidays.
Such periods of absence will not be replaced by a free extension of any course. No refunds or substitutions will be made for classes missed due to exams, excursions, ﬁrst day orientation or other obligations that fall outside the normal teaching schedule. Classes are not held, and many campus facilities are closed, on public holidays. All published course dates start on a Monday, but if the Monday is a public holiday, the course start will fall on the Tuesday.
1.3. Campus facilities: Students are advised that campus facilities may not be available during study breaks. Details are available from the Student Services Team or Reception staff at MIT. 1.4. Placement: MIT may place a student into the most appropriate class and postpone subjects to the following study period where there is an insufficient number of students for that class or subject. 1.5. Course changes: MIT may change course dates, course curricula, tutors and programs at any time at its discretion. However, in cases where the course is rescheduled before the first class and the new date is unacceptable to the student all unused tuition fees will be refunded.
The deadline for any course or unit transfers is the end of week 1 in each study period.
1.6. Tuition fees: The student or student’s family agrees to pay the annual tuition fee and any additional charges in accordance with the fee schedule for the current year published on our website www. murdochinstitute.wa.edu.au. Any refund is made in accordance with the MIT Refund Policy.

Late enrolment: New students in all programs (except for English for Academic Purposes (EAP)) must finalise their class enrolments before the end of week 1 in each study period, and must commence their studies before the end of week 2 in each study period. New students in the EAP program must finalise their class enrolments and commence their studies before the end of week 1 in each study.

Details of any additional costs are in the MIT student handbook or the relevant course or unit outline.

3.2. A student’s enrolment at MIT may be suspended or cancelled in accordance with the MIT Changes to Enrolment Policy (available at www.murdochinstitute.wa.edu.au/policies/), including on grounds of misbehaviour by the student, the student’s failure to pay amount(s) owing to MIT in accordance with this agreement or a breach of course attendance and progression by the student. 4.

All refund requests will be responded to in writing and approved refunds will be paid within 14 days of written notification by MIT. For under 18 students, refunds will be paid to the parent(s) or guardian(s) of the student unless MIT receives written approval from a parent or guardian consenting for the refund to be paid directly to the student. Tuition fees are not transferable to other students.
4.2. In all cases, the enrolment application, medical insurance, courier, Murdoch University deposit and any other service fees (such as the accommodation placement fee) are non-refundable. 4.3. Students that are accessing a FEE HELP loan from the Australian government, who wish to withdraw from their course, must do so in writing before the published census date for the course. Failure to do so may result in the student incurring a debt to the Australian government. Students should note that the census date for each Diploma program at MIT is 3 weeks from the published course start date. Further information is available at http://studyassist.gov.au/ sites/StudyAssist/.
Course enrolment fees will not be refunded if a student withdraws from the subject after the census date for the trimester, except under the following circumstances: - where the student’s application for enrolment is declined by the school; - the student is prevented from studying a module or subject for reason(s) beyond the student’s control, including acts of government authorities, civil strikes and riots; or - the school cancels a subject in which the student has enrolled or where the commencement of the subject or module is postponed for more than two weeks.

Where a student visa application is refused after the published course commencement date, or a student with a visa is refused a release letter from their previous provider, all unspent tuition fees will be refunded. Unused tuition fees will be calculated from the date of written notification received by MIT. No refund is due in the following cases: - Visa application rejected by the Department of Home Affairs (HA) due to submission of fraudulent documents; or - Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) is cancelled due to non-compliance with visa requirements.
In all cases, the student must provide satisfactory evidence to MIT of their visa or release letter refusal (as applicable) before MIT will provide the refund amount. 4.6. If MIT cancels a student’s enrolment caused by a breach of student visa conditions or by student misconduct (including any serious breach of these Terms and Conditions or the MIT policies and procedures by the student), then no refund of tuition fees will apply. 4.7. Protection of student fees: In the unlikely event that MIT is unable to deliver a course in full, students will be offered a refund of all unspent tuition fees.
This refund will be paid within 14 days of the day on which the course ceased being provided. Alternatively, students may be offered enrolment in an alternative course at no extra cost. Students have the right to choose whether they would prefer a refund of unspent tuition fees or to accept a place in another course. If they choose placement in another course, students will need to sign documentation to indicate their acceptance of the placement. In the unlikely event that MIT is unable to provide a refund or place a student in an alternative course, the Tuition Protection Service (TPS) will assist the student in ﬁnding an alternative course or to get a refund if a suitable alternative is not found.
Further information concerning the TPS can be found at www.tps.gov.au.

Visa information: It is the responsibility of the student to arrange all applicable travel permits or visas and to have a valid passport for the whole period of study. The student may be asked to make payment for the ﬁrst study period before any of their visa documentation is issued. Visa application forms (Conﬁrmation of Enrolment) may not be issued by MIT until payment for the ﬁrst study period has been received and the enrolment agreement has been signed and returned to MIT by the student.
The enrolment agreement includes reference to the pre-arrival information and grievance procedures information and can be found on our website www.murdochinstitute.wa.edu.au. 5.2. Student visa obligations: Student visa holders are required to maintain compliance with all applicable visa conditions including providing MIT with a current residential address, mobile number, email address and who to contact in emergency situations, as well as notifying the College of any change in these details within 7 days of the change, maintaining satisfactory academic progress and attending a minimum of 80% of their course.
Students that fail to commence their enrolled course or fail to meet the requirement for 80% attendance or satisfactory academic progress will be reported to the Department of Home Affairs (HA). Any school-aged dependants accompanying overseas students to Australia will be required to pay full fees if they are enrolled in either a government or non-government school.
5.3. Health insurance: Health insurance is compulsory for student visa holders and their accompanying family members. Students are required to provide proof of health insurance at the time of their enrolment. Students will not receive a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) until they have obtained satisfactory health insurance for the length of their visa. The Australian government requires all students on student visas to join the Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) scheme, a health insurance plan for overseas students in Australia. Students must ensure that payment is made for compulsory OSHC before their visa is issued and that the insurance provides adequate coverage for the duration of the student’s visa.
5.4. Codes of practice: MIT abides by the National Code of Practice for Registration Authorities and Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students 2018 (the National Code) and the Educational Services for Overseas Students Act 2000 (Cth) (ESOS Act).

Students will be advised of any changes to these Terms and Conditions that may result from a directive of the governing body of MIT or Murdoch University, or from a change in government legislation or regulation. Any dispute, claim or other matter arising will be subject to the laws of Western Australia.
Students who are dissatisfied with a decision made by MIT may submit a complaint to MIT in accordance with MIT’s Complaints and Appeals Policy (available at www.murdochinstitute.wa.edu.au/ policies/). If a student is dissatisfied with the outcome of a complaint and subsequent appeal, they may also submit an application for review of MIT’s decision or action to the Overseas Student Ombudsman (if they are an international student) or to a State/ Territory fair trading or consumer protection agency. 7. DECLARATION Upon submitting an application to MIT, and subsequently undertaking any study at MIT, the student (or their authorised representative on the student’s behalf – if the student is under 18 years of age): 7.1.

7.9. Understands and agrees to abide by all MIT policies and procedures (available at www.murdochinstitute.wa.edu.au/policies/). 7.10.

5 Kaplan and you Kaplan International Pathways is a leading provider of global education, centred around you. Whoever you are, and wherever you are in the world, our goal is to help you achieve your goal. We passionately believe that a global education can still be personal. Our story so far We wouldn’t be where we are today if it weren’t for a man named Stanley Kaplan. Stanley faced challenges in getting an education himself in the 1930s, and wanted to make sure everyone had the opportunity to learn. This led him to create a test that was fair, so that students could enrol at university based on merit alone.
Soon, Stanley’s small education business began to thrive, and his success led to the creation of a whole new industry.
During the decades since then, Kaplan has changed and grown, but we still remember exactly why Stanley began his business. Sadly, he died in 2009, but his passion for fair education, available to everyone no matter who they are, lives on. 80 years since Kaplan was founded 20,000+ students guided to university each year 40+ universities for you to choose from There was no greater thrill than watching a student's face at that moment of revelation when they finally grasped an idea.
