If my college closes what will happen?

If your college closes, the provider must find you another course to study in or pay you a refund of any unspent tuition fees. They must do this within 14 days of the day they fail to deliver your course.

If your provider does not (or is unlikely to) find you an acceptable course within 14 days, or does not pay you a refund of unspent tuition fees, the Tuition Protection Service (TPS) will help you to find an alternative course with an alternative provider. If you do not find an acceptable course, as a last resort the TPS will pay you a refund of any unspent tuition fees

I am worried my college might close – what should I do?

In the first instance, talk to your education provider/college to seek further information. If you are still concerned, you may outline your concerns in an email to the TPS at the following address operations@tps.gov.au. The TPS will inform the agency responsible for regulating the college so that it can be monitored.

In the meantime, you should make sure you keep receipts for any fees you have paid to the college and ask the college to give you an official record of the study you have completed and the results you have achieved to date.
