Terms & Conditions

Courses

Viable Course: For a course to commence, it is necessary to enrol a minimum number of participants. If this number is not reached, the course will be cancelled. If you have paid for a course which is subsequently cancelled, you will be notified and a full fee refund will be processed automatically. All other courses must remain viable and be self-financing: therefore NO REFUNDS, under any circumstances, are available once a course has commenced. A participant will not be permitted to commence a course/module unless the course/module has been paid for in full by the learner prior to commencement.

Course Deferral: Once a course commences, participants may not defer their place on that course to another term.

Course Completion: QQI Courses must be completed in the academic term that a participant pays for an online course. Otherwise an extra fee will be applied if a participate wishes to re do a module and/or be certified outside of their academic term.

Course Content: Both the content of the tutorials, handouts, notes and assignments given are only for those who have registered and paid for the course. It is considered a breach if you share or disclose course content to a third-party and you will be removed from the course.

Transfers Policy: If a participant wishes to transfer to a different course run online by GK Media limited within the same term, a request should be sent in writing to info@gkmedia.ie

Assignments/Projects: Dates for submission of coursework will be provided by the tutor at the beginning of the course. Coursework will not be returned to the participant once submitted for assessment. Therefore, it is advised that a hard copy of all coursework submitted should be retained by the student. 

Self-directed learning: It is the responsibility of the participants to inform themselves as to course content, duration, etc.

Payment: For QQI Level 5 Courses in association with Galway Technical Institute (GTI), payments must be made online via their website. Alternatively agreed staged payments can be made via Postal Order at Reception in GTI.
