Academique can be prevented from issuing you with a nationally recognised VET qualification or Statement of Attainment when you complete your course if you do not have a Unique Student Identifier (USI).

You may already have a USI if you have done any nationally recognised training, which could include training at work, completing a first aid course or RSA (Responsible Service of Alcohol) course, getting a white card, or studying at a TAFE or training organisation. It is important that you try to find out whether you already have a USI before attempting to create a new one. You should not have more than one USI.

ACADEMIQUE has, in line with government requirements, a fair, reasonable and equitable refund policy guaranteeing refund of students’ fees where applicable. Please note that the federal government changes legislation or issues directives from time to time, and the college is required to follow them.

  • If your visa is refused or evidenced compassionate or compelling circumstances arise before you start your course, you are entitled to a full refund of your course fees less an administration fee of no more than 5% or $500 (whichever is the smaller amount). (Depends on the total course fee.) A refund will be granted only upon receipt of proof of the visa rejection/ evidence.
  • If you commenced your course under a bridging visa or other visa and your student visa is refused, a refund might not be available if you have been in a position to complete any unit in your course. If your visa is refused after you start your course, you are entitled to a refund of the fees paid for the part of your course you have not commenced, calculated from the date the college receives an actionable, signed withdrawal request, with calculations based on the registered study weeks of the course.
  • If a refund is requested 28 calendar days or more prior to course commencement, a full refund of the course fees paid at enrolment will be refunded within 7 working days if evidenced Compassionate and Compelling circumstances are provided. (The college is closed for up to 4 weeks over the Christmas/New Year period.)
  • If a refund is requested between 14 – 27 calendar days prior to course commencement, a refund of the total course fee paid less $200 for administration costs will be refunded within 7 working days if evidenced Compassionate and Compelling circumstances are provided.
  • If a refund is requested between 1 – 13 days prior to course commencement, there is no refund of any course fees paid.
  • Once training has commenced in the enrolled course, no refund is available to students who leave before finalising the course. The student remains liable for any units commenced if the monthly “Payment Plan” fees have not covered all costs. Payment by the student of outstanding fees must be made in full in Australian currency within 7 working days of the student notifying the college of their intention to leave the course. Please note: Home Affairs must be informed in writing when the college is notified of your intention to leave. Please report to your closest Home Affairs office immediately regarding your visa.
  • Refunds are not available to students who simply change their plans unless evidenced Compassionate and Compelling circumstances are provided.
  • Should ACADEMIQUE cancel a course prior to commencement, participants are entitled to a full refund as per the ESOS Act 2000 and ESOS Regulation 2001 within 7 working days.
  • All approved refunds will be paid within 7 working days of receipt of the written application and appropriate evidence.
  • Pre-paid fees will not be refunded to students who are expelled from the college (following the appeals process) for stealing, cheating, damaging property or persons on college premises or falsifying documents.
  • ACADEMIQUE will pay the refund amount to the person who entered into the contract with ACADEMIQUE, unless that person gives a written direction to ACADEMIQUE to pay the refund to someone else. This applies whether an education agent is involved or not.
  • ACADEMIQUE will pay the refund amount in Australian dollars. Any additional currency exchanges will be at the cost of the student.
  • To claim a refund, please ask Administration for a “Refund Processing Form”.
  • Please ensure you refer to the Easy Guide to the ESOS framework –
  • In the unlikely event the college is unable to deliver your course in full after you have commenced you may be offered enrolment in an alternative course at no extra cost to you. If we are unable to provide you with an alternative course the Federal Government TPS will place you in a suitable alternative course. This college has been operating in various forms since the 1970’s and registered since 1981. This event has not occurred during over 30 years of operation. (From handbook)


Academique will not knowingly enrol an overseas student seeking to transfer from another registered provider’s course prior to the overseas student completing six months of his or her principal course unless the following circumstances exist:

  • The original provider has ceased to be registered or the course in which the student is enrolled has ceased to be registered.
  • The original provider has a sanction imposed on that program.
  • The original provider agrees to the release.

Academique will grant a transfer release if the transfer is evidenced to be in the student’s best interests. Our definition of a student’s ‘best interests’ are:

  • The student’s visa status at Home Affairs won’t be damaged by the new program being very different in field, level and length from their visa grant.
  • The new plan has an outcome that is realistic and suitable for the student.
  • Whether the student will need to apply for a new visa and would the student (in the opinion of a registered expert) be likely to receive it.
  • If the student is unable to achieve satisfactory course progress in his or her program, even after engaging with Academique’s intervention strategy to assist him or her.
  • If there is evidence of compassionate and/or compelling circumstances.
  • If Academique is unable to deliver the course as outlined in the written agreement.
  • If the student’s reasonable expectations about their current course are not being met.
  • If there is evidence that the overseas student was misled by the registered provider or an education or migration agent regarding the registered provider or its course, and the course is therefore unsuitable to their needs and/or study objectives.

Academique will release a student once the following actions have occurred:

  • The student has provided a Letter of Offer from another registered college confirming a valid enrolment offer has been made and include details on the new course including course code, commencement and conclusion date.
  • Current course fees for any units commenced are paid whether the unit is successfully completed or not.
  • Current course fees are paid up to date.
  • The Letter of Release is issued for no charge.
  • If the registered college does not issue a Letter of Release, we must provide you (the student) with a letter outlining why we have refused your request within 20 working days. We will inform you of your right to appeal our decision in accordance with standard 8 of the National Code for International Students.
  • If the release is granted, the student will be advised to contact Home Affairs to seek advice on whether a new student visa is required
