Statement of Tuition Assurance

Learners who access VET Student Loans

Academy of Interactive Entertainment (AIE) is part of the VSL Tuition Protection arrangements set out in the VET Student Loans Act 2016 and VET Student Loans Rules 2016.

This protects you in the event that we cease to provide a course of study that you are enrolled in. If this were to occur, you would have two options:

  • An offer of a place in a similar VET course with another provider without the requirement to pay the other provider any tuition fee for any replacement units of study. This is known as the ‘VET Course Assurance Option’ OR
  • A refund of your upfront tuition fees for any unit of study that you commence but do not complete because we ceased to provide the course that the unit of study was part of. This is known as the ‘VET Tuition Fee Repayment Option’.

Learners who do not access VET Student Loans

Academy of Interactive Entertainment (AIE) does not require prospective or current learners to prepay tuition fees. Should a learner choose to prepay tuition fees and the agreed training and assessment for which the learner has paid in advance is not provided by AIE, the learner would have two options:

  • An offer of a place in a similar VET course with another provider without the requirement to pay the other provider any tuition fee for any replacement units of study. OR
  • A refund of your upfront tuition fees for any unit of study that you commence but do not complete because we ceased to provide the course that the unit of study was part of.

AIE will protect tuition fees paid in advance, is committed to act in good faith and in keeping with our refund policy.

Learners who are International Students

Academy of Interactive Entertainment (AIE) is part of the Tuition Protection Service (TPS). TPS is an initiative of the Australian Government to assist international students whose education providers are unable to fully deliver their course of study. The TPS ensures that international students are able to either:

  • complete their studies in another course or with another education provider or
  • receive a refund of their unspent tuition fees.
