Tuition Protection Scheme

What is Tuition Protection?

Tuition protection protects students in the event that a course provided by an Institute of Higher Education ceases to be provided after it starts but before it is completed. As an approved Institute of Higher Education, the Australian Institute of Advanced Technologies (ABN: 82 649 662 788; CRICOS Provider No 04191M) is required to comply with the Higher Education Standards Framework which ensures tuition protection is provided for students.

AIAT students have protection for their tuition fees through the Tuition Protection Service.

 

The Tuition Protection Service (TPS) is an initiative of the Australian Government to assist:

  • International students on a student visa
  • Domestic students accessing a FEE-HELP or HECS-HELP (HELP) loan
  • Domestic students who pay their fees directly to their provider (upfront payments)

 

Where a higher education provider defaults.

A provider defaults in relation to a subject or course if it:

  • fails to commence a subject or course;
  • ceases to deliver a subject or course after the subject or course has started and before it has ended; or
  • closes completely.

 

In the event that a provider defaults, affected students will be assisted to either:

  • complete their studies in an equivalent or similar subject and/or course with the same or another higher education provider; or
  • receive a refund of their unspent tuition fees (international students and prepaid domestic students); or
  • a re-credit of their HELP loan.

 

If the defaulting provider is unable to assist affected students, the Higher Education Tuition Protection Director from the Tuition Protection Service (TPS) will step in to assist students.

 

For more information, please go to the TPS website

Or contact: administrator@tps.gov.au or 1300 980 434

Tuition Fee Refund Requests

The Refund Policy and Refund Procedure (available here) explains the circumstances in which you can apply for a refund.

Complete the Tuition Fee Refund Form if you are applying for a refund of all or part of your tuition fees (‘student default”). Send the completed Form (with original supporting documentation) to:

Manager, Student Services Office
AIAT
Level 9, 50 Grenfell Street
Adelaide, 5000
Australia

Students must lodge a Refund Request Form and required supporting documentation with Student Support Services.
Applications which are received more than 12 months after withdrawal from the relevant subject must provide appropriate documentation outlining the reason/s for late application. Separate documentation must be provided as explanation for making a late application, and this documentation cannot be the same as the documentation submitted for the application for refund.

Circumstances supporting late applications may include, but are not limited to:

  • student incarceration;
  • income threshold reaching repayment level for the first time;
  • long term illness or extended family crises; or
  • defence personnel being deployed.

These circumstances must be documented and submitted with the application.
AIAT will advise the student in writing of the outcome of their application, normally within 6 weeks of receipt of the application. The notice of decision will state:

  • the reasons for the decision;
  • the right of review; and
  • an outline of the review process.

If the request is successful, AIAT will:

  • authorise a refund of tuition fees; and/or
  • grant a ‘withdrawn not fail’ for the approved units and adjust the students’ Academic Record accordingly.

In the case of International Students, where a refund is payable under this Procedure due to student default, AIAT will provide advice and pay the student the amount within the time limits prescribed by the Education Services for Overseas Student Act 2000 as amended from time to time, and after receiving a written claim from the student.
Refunds will be paid directly to the student who submitted the application except for those International Students sponsored by a government authority. In these cases, the refund will be paid to the authority who originally paid the student’s fees and not directly to the claimant.

If an application for refund is unsuccessful and a fail grade has been recorded against the subject(s) in which a refund is requested, the student may be eligible to apply for ‘withdrawn not fail’ in accordance with the Enrolment, Leave of Absence and Withdrawal Policy.
The refund policy does not remove your right to take further action under Australian Consumer Law. To know how the refunds are calculated for international students, please click here.
