Course fees must be received in full up to two weeks prior to a course commencement date.

Payment Plans

The use of a payment plan in relation to course fees is only allowed to students undertaking the Diploma programmes. On this circumstance, students may avail of the following payment plan structure:

Students who wish to avail of this payment plan must submit their request in writing to Each request is reviewed on an individual basis.

Failure to make payments in the above timeframe will result in the student being withdrawn from the programme. All facilities available to the student will be withdrawn with immediate effect.

Students will not be allowed to sit the examination until the payment is fulfilled. All fees paid up to this point are non-refundable and non-transferable.


A confirmed registration may be cancelled without cost for up to two weeks (14 days) prior to course commencement. If payment has been received and a registered delegate cannot attend, a substitute may take that place (assuming the new delegate is eligible for that programme).


Refunds, of course, fees up to two weeks (14 days) prior to course commencement will be processed.

Refunds of course fees within two weeks (14 days) prior to course commencement are not available except under extenuating circumstances at the sole discretion of the Institute or in cases where the Institute is not in a position to comply with its obligations to the student.

A student negates the cooling-off period once he/she has commenced the programme, as this is considered an expression of acceptance of the above Terms & Conditions and the use of the service. As a result, no refunds will be issued to students after the programme start date.

In order to apply for a refund, a request must be submitted to together with supporting documentation.

If applicable, a refund will only be made payable to the person or company who made the original payment.

Deferral or Resit Applications

Students are expected to complete the course and sit the examination on the date for which they originally registered. However, IPM recognises that in exceptional cases there could be serious circumstances outside of your control that may hinder the ability to do so, and a deferral or resit may be sought.

Timeframe for Resit or Deferral Completion

Students must complete the course or exam within two years of initial enrolment and may only attend the modules not previously attended on their initial booking. This timeframe starts from the original course commencement date (first class).

Any student who has not completed their course or exam within the period defined above must re-register for the course and pay the full enrollment fee before starting again. Exceptional circumstances can be considered at the sole discretion of IPM.

Based on appropriate evidence of a disability and information obtained from the student on the impact of their disability and their academic course requirements, the Institute will identify supports designed to meet the student's disability support needs.

A range of Standard disability examination accommodations will be available to students.

A student may be eligible to avail of an extra time allowance during examinations (10, 15 or 20 minutes an hour extra time), which will be determined during the Needs Assessment.
