Request a copy of our resource Approximate total program-related costs for AGST Alliance programs, which gives indicative figures for these items.
We regret that no scholarship money is directly available from AGST Alliance.
However, we actively support student applications to trusts/foundations for financial assistance.
If a student withdraws from a program, a request for fees refunds may be considered; but the student should initiate the request within three months of withdrawing.
If a student withdraws from the program for other than significant compassionate reasons, no refund of fees will be made.
If a student has paid fees in advance, a refund equivalent to complete components of the program (e.g. coursework modules) not attended will be refundable.
An administration fee of 10% of the amount to be refunded will be charged for fees refunds.
