Closure of the Institution

In the unlikely event that the Institute closes mid-way through course delivery, IFT will invoke its ‘teach out’ plan to protect students, where alternative premises will be identified to complete courses. If there was a situation that threatened the existence of the Institute where this was not possible, IFT would approach other training providers to accept students part way through courses as a potential pathway to complete, as all course providers meet the same professional standards as set out by AFT. In an instance where closure could be foreseen, IFT will transfer the fees to the other provider. In exceptional circumstances that result in IFT being unable to complete delivery of a course, or provide teach out arrangements and this can be foreseen, the full fee will be returned to students.
