Cancellation & Refund Policy
Study Vision understands that circumstances can change and students may need to cancel any booking at any time. However the following terms and conditions apply for refund requests:
- In the event that a student has to cancel for events beyond their control, the student and/or the parents or their agent are to immediately contact our office to discuss the circumstances with us. Study Vision reserves the right to accept or reject a request for a refund. Valid reasons for accepting any refund include: Visa application rejection (copy of rejection letters from the Australian Immigration Office and your applied institution to be submitted); trip cancellation due to Force Majeure (war, natural disaster, death) and major illness with doctor’s certificate and confirmation from your education provider that you have withdrawn your study as proof.
- Any “Request for a Cancellation” must only be in writing and delivered to our email at info@studyvision (dot) com (dot) au and must be referenced by the Student’s name, Date of Birth and Australian Bank Account details (Account name + BSB + Account number).
- No refunds will be made if a “Request for Refund” email is received more than two (2) weeks after the student’s scheduled arrival date to Australia.
- “Requests for Refunds” will be promptly attended to, and if approved, will get paid to the student’s Australian bank account, in Australia, within 7 work days. If the student does not have an Australian bank account, and will not be coming to Australia, the refund can be made to an international bank account, but additional charges will be deducted from the refundable amount. A receipt of payment will be emailed to the student upon the student’s request.
- Refunds shall be made in Australian dollars only, regardless of the currency used to pay for a service.
- All refunds made will have any applicable bank charges plus Administration Charges deducted before refunds are made.
- Study Vision reserves the right to cancel any application received – even after payment (partial or full) is received – at its own decision, and at any time, without any penalties or compensation on Study Vision, and to thus immediately refund any net payments received, if Study Vision is unable to satisfy the applicant’s requests for any reason, or if there are reasons to doubt the nature of the application, or authenticity of the applicant, or if the applicant did not make full payment of fees and rents due by a deadline, as requested to do so in our Offer letter. Study Vision shall effect this cancellation by simply writing an email to the applicant advising of the cancellation and intent to immediately refund any payments made to date, net of any bank charges.
Refunds related to Homestay Booking:
- The Accommodation Placement Fee is not refundable if a booking is cancelled at any time after service fees are paid.
- If a student cancels a Homestay booking after they had “Accepted and Confirmed the Offer” and before scheduled arrival to Australia, two (2) weeks rent (Homestay rental Fees) will not be refunded, to compensate the homestay family.
- Homestay rent period commences from the date it is booked. If a student arrives to the Homestay to start a rent period at any later date, no refunds in-lieu of the lost days will normally be given, unless a valid reason is approved by Study Vision and the Host family.
- There is no refund of homestay rental fees (rent) within the first 4 weeks after moving in to the Homestay, or if the student did not show up at all.
Refunds related to Airport Pickup Booking:
- Airport Pickup Fees are refundable if cancelled at least 48 hours before scheduled arrival time, less any applicable bank charges and administration fees.
- If arrival details change (for example, arrival date or flight number changes) and Study Vision is not notified both by email and by phone (call +61 410 691 761) or WeChat (studyvisionoz) at least 24 hours before the initial scheduled arrival time, a second Airport Pickup fees will be charged to the student.
- Students who do not arrive at the airport as scheduled, without prior notice, will not receive any refunds. If they still require Study Vision to pick them up from the airport, we will strive to do so, depending on available drivers at the time, and provided a new (second) airport pickup fee is paid in full.
Refunds related to Guardianship Booking:
- Guardianship Application Fee is not refundable once received.
- Prepaid Guardianship Fees are only refunded if the Visa is refused (copy of rejection letters from the Australian Immigration Office and your applied institution to be submitted).
- For requests to change the Guardian after arrival, the first three (3) months of Guardianship fees are not refunded. The balance of Guardianship fees will be refunded provided the new Guardian is an approved Guardian by the student’s educational institute.
