ICOT Refund Policy

ICOT College grounds for a refund or partial refund of fees:

a) Irish Study Visa extension refusal (for students who are not successful in obtaining their visa). Any application for a refund must be made in writing and must be accompanied by both a copy of the rejection letter from the GNIB and a copy of their stamped passport. Please note: the rejection letter issued by the GNIB will be evaluated by the College in order to assess grounds for any refund. All original letters issued by the College along with the student’s GNIB card must be returned to ICOT College administration before any refund can be considered.

b) Illness or disability suffered after the student’s enrollment has been confirmed. In any such instance, a doctor’s certificate would be required to confirm.

c) Upon arrival in Dublin, should any student be refused access into Ireland for any reason, any application for a refund must be made in writing and be accompanied by both a copy of the rejection letter from the GNIB and a copy of their stamped passport. Please note: the rejection letter issued by the GNIB will be evaluated by the College in order to assess grounds for any refund.
