Terms and Conditions


A learner may express their right to cancel their purchase via email up to 30 days prior to course commencement. On this expression a full refund will be issued without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days.

If a refund is requested in writing less than 30 days prior to commencement a Service and Administrative charge of €100 will be deducted from the refund due. Refunds are issued to the card from which the programme fees were taken. In the cases of deferral a student’s initial purchase will be considered their commencement and as such a €100 charge may be deducted from their fees upon cancellation of their new intake.

Once the course has been commenced by a student, this is an indication of use of service and express acceptance of the above terms and conditions, and as a result no refunds will be issued at that point as it negates the cooling off period.

MCDT reserves the right to cancel, postpone or modify the course delivery dates. This will only occur to such an extent as is necessary.

Course Holidays
