All monies are banked into the Public Trust who administers the fees as per the legislative requirement Section 236A of the Education Act 1989. The money is withdrawn in stages as the course is completed. Should payment for the course not be received by the sixth week of the course, then the student will be liable for any legal or collection costs incurred.

The following withdrawal and refund policy applies to your course fees paid as per the Education Act 1989: (i) Students enrolled for a course of study may withdraw from that course from enrolment and up to seven days after the first day of the course for which attendance of students at the Campus is required. If withdrawal from that course also constitutes withdrawal from the Campus as a whole, the student is entitled to a refund of all payments made, less $500 or 10% of any amount paid, whichever is the lesser amount. (ii) If the student withdraws from one course and transfers to another course at either the same or an alternative campus an Administration Fee of up to $250.00 may be charged. Notices of withdrawal from a course must be made to the Campus in writing. (iii) No refunds will be considered seven days after the first day of course commencement.

Optional international field trip on all Diploma/Management Courses

The educational includes international flights, accommodation, airport transfers, hotel inspections, and possible sightseeing depending on destination. Estimated cost is $1,000.00 for 3 - 4 days for Australia or a South Pacific Island.

Credit Transfer

New Zealand School of Tourism has a policy of recognising the transfer of credits from other New Zealand training establishments to us. For students who have already completed some of the unit standards included in the course there are some other options available to you. Not all training establishments have this as their policy however, so you may not be able to transfer your credits from us to another training establishment.

Complaints Procedures

If you have a complaint it should be taken in the first instance to your Class Tutor or the Head of Studies, for discussion. It will be discussed with you, along with the various options available, and if necessary discussed with any other parties involved and the Campus Manager, in an attempt to solve it. If the complaint is unable to be resolved satisfactorily, then it can be taken to the General Manager. If still not resolved then the complaint can be taken to: New Zealand Qualifications Authority Ph: (04) 802-3000

Course Content

New Zealand School of Tourism reserves the right to alter a course if deemed necessary and is not liable to any student if contracted services cannot be provided for any reason such as withdrawal of agreement from airlines, political unrest in a country, strikes, price increases from suppliers etc. There is no refund for any part of the course not provided or undertaken for whatever reason. Certain criteria must be reached before students can go on the field trips, and carry on to completing Level 4 or International Flight Attending. Failure to reach these criteria will result in students unable to participate with no refund owing. If students are absent from class a medical certificate is required in order for you to make up the class with another group. Joining another group will not be possible however, if you are absent when your educational is on or if you had failed to meet the criteria.
