Terms & Conditions

This page gives an overview of The National Institute of Education’s terms & conditions in relation to the participation enrollment into the Future Doctors Australia program coordinated and conducted by NIE Careers, NIE Staff, MICAS Staff, and externally contracted industry consultants.


After enrolling in the course and paying the deposit or total fees, the student is sent an enrollment confirmation. With the receipt of the enrollment confirmation by the student, the contract takes effect. An invoice is forwarded with the enrollment confirmation, informing the student of the payable course fees.

B O O K I N G  D E P O S I T

The student must pay a booking deposit fee of AU$ 490 in order to confirm their attendance on the course. The booking deposit fee is non-refundable. This agreement is conditional on the payment of the non-refundable booking deposit by the student and the agreement is deemed to have come into effect upon the receipt of the booking deposit.

B A L A N C E   P A Y M E N T

The full course fees should be received by NIE Careers at least 30 days before the start of the program. For all enrollment applications received within 30 days from the start of the program, the full payment must be paid. All bank charges related to the payment of the course fee shall be borne by the student.

If the NIE Careers does not receive full payment of the course fees by the due date, the student will no longer be entitled to the course booked. In this case, NIE is entitled to make the program available to other interested parties. In case of non-attendance at the booked course, delayed start, early finish or withdrawal from a course or pre-arranged lesson, or any other absences (e.g. due to illness), there is no claim to reimbursement of the course fees.

P R I V A C Y   P R O T E C T I O N

NIE Careers collect, process, and use the personal data of the course student both for the purpose of fulfilling the contract signed with the course student and as permitted by law and under the terms of any signed declaration of consent in compliance with privacy protection laws.


In exceptional cases, students may postpone the course booked (e.g. the start date) subject to the written consent of NIE Careers and subject to the payment of any postponement fee to be communicated to the student by NIE Careers upon request.
