Total remaining to pay: $200.00

All prices are inclusive of 15% GST.

If you are over 18 and someone else is organizing course fee payments on your behalf, please fill out the required fields. Please note this does not remove your legal financial agreement responsibilities.

Terms & Conditions
The course fee includes a non-refundable non-transferrable Registration Fee.

Student Kits remain the property of The Makeup School Ltd, until final payment has been made.

Course Fee, Student Kit cost, Registration Fee and payment dates are all specified in the student’s Acceptance Letter.

Payments must be received by The Makeup School Ltd ON OR BEFORE their due date as specified in the student’s Acceptance Letter. We recommend noting payment dates as a Late Payment Fee of $20.00 per day will be charged until payment is received and the student may not be allowed to attend class until payment is made.

Once the course has commenced all fees must be paid in full as per the student’s nominated payment method. Any outstanding debt owed past the course end date will be dealt with at the discretion of the Makeup School and may incur collection costs.

Student Withdrawal
If the student withdraws from the course the policy specific to that course applies.

The student will be refunded within 20 working days of the date of written confirmation of the final refund amount to the student from the school. The amount to be refunded will be paid into the student’s nominated New Zealand bank account.

Debt Recovery
In the case of any external debt recovery charges, the responsibility of these charges will lie with the student, or where the student is under 18, the responsibility will lie with the legal parent or guardian.

Force Majeure
In the event The Makeup School is forced to close for a period of time due but not limited to fire, flood, earthquake, terrorism, act of God, act of any government, or lock-out, your course will either revert to online facilitation or will be deferred to the next available course.

The student agrees to continue to pay their outstanding Course fees on or before the payment dates specified in their Acceptance Letter. Failure to continue or complete Course fee payment on or before the specified payment dates will result in the student being excluded from online facilitation or course deferral and the school will take any monies owed to it into consideration of any refund to the student.

Late payment fees will remain in effect during this time.

Either party reserves the right to cancel their contractual agreement should the force majeure affect closure of the school and the prevention of online facilitation or deferral to the next available course for a period exceeding six (6) calendar months. In the event of the cancellation of the parties’ contractual agreement in this instance The Makeup School reserves the right to refund at their discretion.

Course Cancellation
The Makeup School reserves the right cancel a course where circumstances warrant (e.g. there are insufficient enrolments). In the event this happens students will be offered a deferral to the next available course or a full refund or all monies paid to date, including their Registration Fee.

Course Facilitation
The Makeup School reserves the right to change the manner of course facilitation at any time.

Right of Reserve
The Makeup School reserves the right to refund at their complete discretion upon evidence of extenuating circumstances.
