Online Students

Online Students are entitled to a cooling off period of 14 days, which begins on the day that access to the course is granted. If a student decides they do not want to commence the course during this period a refund may be granted. Once Class Network (Learning Management System – LMS) is accessed by a student, this is an indication of use of service and acceptance of terms and conditions, and as a result at this point no refunds will be issued, even within the standard cooling off period of 14 days. After the cooling off period no refunds will be issued whether Class Network (LMS) has been accessed or not.


The access period for the mentored online programme is for 52 weeks or one calendar year. After this time the users access to the LMS will be revoked and as a result at this point no refunds will be issued.


Payment Terms for Online Students

Students will only be granted access to online content once the full payment is made. Failure to make payments in the above timeframe will result in student access being withdrawn and, if the full fee is not received, all course fees paid up to that point will be non-transferable and non-refundable.


Start Date

Automatic access to your online programme is provided immediately after you pay. Your official enrolment/access date however, begins on the 1st day of the subsequent month of payment.


For example:
If you pay on any date in September, your official access starts October 1st.



Students who wish to defer their participation on an online course may do so in extreme circumstances for a maximum period of 12 months. Full course fees will need to be remitted before students can defer participation and deferral is at the discretion of Code Institute. Course participation will not be deferred while an outstanding fee remains on the student account.
