Notice to students
The Official Liquidator has received a large volume of requests for refunds of course fees from students who were enrolled on courses to be provided by the Company. Students should note that there will be insufficient funds in the liquidation to refund the full amount owed by the Company to each student. It will be necessary for the Official Liquidator to ascertain the amount available for that purpose and to validate the claims of students, which may take some time. All students who are known to the Official Liquidator will receive proof of debt forms by 29 June 2015. Any student who has not received a claim form by that date should contact the Official Liquidator's office by email to request a form.
