- All fees shall be paid in advance before the first day of each
term. Acceptance of a place imposes the obligation to pay the fees
for each and every term of the course and that only in exceptional
circumstances will withdrawal be permitted before completion of the
agreed term, and in such cases students are liable to pay the fees
up until the date agreed upon with the college.
- If these obligations are not met, the enrolment will be
terminated and the fees will be due as per the agreed terms.
- No fees are returnable in the case of any students leaving
after the beginning of a term for any reason whatsoever.
- The college maintains the right to terminate the course of any
student who, in the opinion of the Dean of studies, is not making
- Any infringement of the ILC General Regulations or of the ILSís
Code of Conduct, will result in a student, at the discretion of the
college, being suspended or dismissed from the programme.
The Student Attendance Policy is intended to assist the College
to enable our learners to achieve their full potential and also to
meet Home Office requirements.
The College is aware of the enormous investment that learners make,
both in time and money, in choosing to pursue a course in Further or
Higher Education. As a responsible institution, we believe the
College has a duty to follow-up promptly on matters of unauthorised
absence so that learners can be supported and given every
opportunity to succeed. Attendance at all classes at the College is
compulsory unless other approved modes of study are authorised by
the class lecturer. Learners are required to attend all classes and
to take responsibility for their own learning. Learning is a shared
experience in which learners are expected to play a full and active
Lectures are used to get over material and teaching and to
explain and analyse problem situations. Small class groups, i.e.
seminars, workshops, case studies, etc. are used to develop the
students analytical and critical abilities and to integrate subject
areas and deal with difficulties as well as developing their oral
presentation skills. Private study and assignments enable students
to develop their knowledge and present their work in a written form.
Students are also monitored as to how their knowledge of their areas
of study is developing and how well they understand the key
principles involved as well as ascertaining that they have developed
the necessary communication skills and competencies.
Assessment is mainly based on written assignments and oral
presentations. There will be tutorial session to provide feedback in
assessment. Students would normally be allowed only one change of
course at the end of semester one. A student who does not reach a
satisfactory pass standard in an assessment element is allowed to
recoup the mark by further work decided upon by the Unit team. After
further work of a satisfactory standard a minimum pass mark will be
Plagiarism, cheating, collusion and attempting to obtain an
unfair academic advantage are forms of academic misconduct and are
entirely unacceptable for any student. As such, these forms of
academic misconduct will be subject to disciplinary regulations.
There will be severe action taken in the event of plagiarism and
will have a negative impact on the outcome of your course.
Appeal and Grievance
- An appeal is normally a request for a decision to be
reviewed. It is possible to appeal against the decision of an
examination board (an academic appeal) or a decision to impose a
penalty, normally through the disciplinary procedure (non-academic
appeal). The grounds on which an appeal may be made are normally
quite tightly defined.
- A complaint does not normally relate to a decision made.
It may relate to an aspect of your experiences as a student
at the college, or a service which you were led to expect but feel
you did not receive. Again, a complaint may relate to academic
matters (such as teaching or supervision) or to non-academic
- A grievance always relates to matters affecting
relations with other students or staff. You can use the grievance
procedure if you believe that you have been unfairly treated by a
member of staff or another student, or have suffered mistreatment
from them, which you believe to be harassment, bullying or
Agents at the ILC are very carefully chosen and kept in constant
contact and are asked to guide the students in selection of an
appropriate course according to their academic suitability and level
The ILC is in constant screening and vetting of students and only
select those students who are genuinely coming to UK for studies.
