  • For some courses, you may enrol and pay online
  • A monthly direct debit option is available for annual course fees of £340 or more, excluding examination, registration fees or other costs.

Refund of fees

Minimum numbers are required before a course can run. In the event of a course recruiting insufficient numbers, we will try to offer you alternatives or, failing that, will automatically refund any monies you have paid. Craven College reserves the right to merge or alter the delivery of courses, subject to student numbers. If, as a result of this, the day or time of the course alters to the extent that you are no longer able to attend, we will refund an appropriate proportion of the course fee and any exam/registration fee paid. In all other cases, fees will not be refunded as per the Fee & Refunds Policy.

If you decide not to continue your studies for any reason, full fees are still payable as set out in our Fees and Refunds Policy. This includes fees payable by direct debit or fees which have been paid for you by your employer or sponsor.
