Student Handbook


Course enrolments are not transferable to another person, and course enrolment fees are not refundable after a period of one month (30 days) from date of enrolment. There are no refunds available thereafter and no refund for any module fees paid. An administrative fee of $500 will be deducted from any refund made within the specified period of time.

Fee Collection and Student Refund Policy


Students must be enrolled in at least ONE module per semester to maintain active enrolment in the course.

Modules have end dates each Semester after which, if work is not completed, will be recorded as a fail. Students will need to re-enrol and pay the Module fee again.  Any work completed to a satisfactory standard before this time, may be credited upon re-enrolment. A pass mark of 65% is required for all modules, assessments and examinations.

In some circumstances, enrolled students are able to request in writing an extension or deferral of up to of one (1) year of the course duration.

Enrolment Policy


The Montessori Institute recognises that learning occurs in a variety of ways, including formal study at universities, private providers, employer-based training, professional development and relevant experience gained within the workforce. The Institute is committed to recognising previous studies and other relevant prior learning that contribute towards satisfying requirements for its courses.

This information explains how to have your prior learning and current skills and/or knowledge recognised.  Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) is an integral part of our service and everyone is entitled to apply.
