In the event of a visa refusal which is confirmed in writing from the Visa section of the Department of Justice, a full refund of fees will issue.  A partial refund may be considered where a student has registered and has subsequently been certified as medically unfit to continue their studies and as a result have been repatriated.  Where such a refund has been agreed, payment will be made into a bank in the student’s country of origin.
