Protection of Enrolled Learners

To comply with the Qualifications and Quality Assurance (Education and Training) Act 2012 Part 6, Dorset College provides financial protection in accordance with the 2012 Act to all students who are enrolled on our courses in the event that the school must close for any reason as set out in the 2012 Act.

Dorset College is a member of the Marketing English in Ireland (MEI), which together with other member schools support Learner Protection, thereby being able to guarantee to students that they will be able to complete all language courses for which they are enrolled. The Membership of MEI requires that all members must agree that: "... in the event of an MEI school going unexpectedly out of business, they will accept students whose course of tuition in the closed school has not yet expired.

The allocation of such students to member schools will be managed by the MEI office" Payment of Fees required for Visa-Applicants Students who are visa applicants must provide evidence of payment of fees. These Fee payments are processed through an account independent of the school’s day-to-day business. This is done for the separation of payments and the protection of students.


Fees paid by Visa Applicants are either:

  • Transferred to the school on the successful processing of their Visa Application, or
  • Refunded, within 30 days of notification by the applying student, to the bank account nominated by the student at the time of application The operation of this account is subject to examination by Dorset College auditors and state regulators.
