General Information

BOOKING YOUR COURSE – Places are allocated on a first come first served basis. Early booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.

WHAT HAPPENS IF MY CLASS DOES NOT RUN? – If your class is not going to run you will be notified and an appropriate refund will be made. In order to help us contact you please supply an email address and a day time telephone number.

DO I HAVE TO PAY? – Students in receipt of certain benefits or a low income may not have to pay fees for Certificate and Computing courses although they will be required to pay a 25% deposit at the time of booking. The deposit will be refunded once the student has attended 25% of their course and has also provided appropriate benefit/low income evidence at point of booking. Students will be required to send a copy of their evidence to Borders College within 2 weeks of the course start date.
Failure to attend the required 25% of the course and provide the correct evidence will result in the student being liable to pay the full cost of the course with the deposit no longer being refundable.
