Acceptable Use Policy for Computers and Information Technology

During orientation, students are required to sign a policy which defines the responsibilities of students when using the computing and information technology facilities provided by Aspire2 International.

Student and Tutor Contract

During orientation, students are required to sign an agreement confirming their commitment to:

  • adhere to Aspire2 International Policies and Procedures.
  • attend classes punctually, and notify Aspire2 International staff if unable to attend.
  • be honest and co-operative in dealings with the other learners/students and with Tutors.
  • complete any assignments on time and to work on them to the best of their ability

Use of student photos, videos and testimonials:

  • From time to time Aspire2 International gathers and publishes/posts photographs, video records and written/spoken testimonials of students on its website, in its prospectus, newsletters and other means of mass media communication.
  • It is Aspire2 International's policy that any published items are positive depictions of students.

 Student Fee Protection

The New Zealand Government requires that New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) registered Private Training Establishments (PTE’s) protect all student fees paid to them (‘Fee Protect’). Aspire2 International PTE’s are registered for Fee Protect through the Public Trust, which has an unsecured capital guarantee from the New Zealand Government. For further information visit www.feeprotect.co.nz  

This means, in the unlikely event that Aspire2 International is unable to provide the course in which you are enrolled (this could be because of closure, insolvency, loss of NZQA accreditation or course withdrawal), the remainder of your student fees (including accommodation and living expenses if paid in advance) will be protected. You will have the choice to receive any remaining fees back or have them paid directly to an alternative Education Provider. 

 Student Withdrawals and Fee Refunds

This fee refund procedure is in accordance with the Education Act 1989 and amendments as implemented by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority, and applies to all international students.

If a student withdraws from any Aspire2 International course, they must notify the school in writing of their intention to withdraw. Aspire2 International will promptly commence the withdrawal process and once complete will notify the student that the withdrawal process has been completed (’Notification of Withdrawal’).

Refunds, where payable, will be processed within five (5) working days of the date upon which the Notification of Withdrawal is issued. The refund will be paid in New Zealand dollars and will be paid to the party who originally paid the fees.
