Withdrawals

Students must provide evidence stating if they are studying elsewhere or upgrading to a higher qualification to be eligible to withdraw. If the withdrawal is granted, the student will receive a release letter. If the application is rejected, the student has the right to appeal by completing a complaints and appeals form.

Additionally, International students must have completed at least 6 months of a course in order to withdraw. If students are returning off-shore, they must provide a one-way Airline ticket.

Deferrals

The process for deferrals is the same for both International and Domestic (AUS/NZ) students who wish to cease their studies for more than three weeks during the course trimester. Local students on Smart and Skilled funding have a maximum deferral time. International students who defer their studies are unable to remain in Australia and must complete the deferral time off-shore.

For more information about withdrawals or deferrals, contact our Compliance team on +61 02 9314 6213 or compliance@kenvale.edu.au.

Thank you for inviting us - we really did appreciate it. I must say I was really impressed by the Briar Ridge team - one of them (… Aiden) did a really great job explaining who they were, what they were about etc., and really took the time to give us the background on the person behind it all (Gwyn Olsen). He'd clearly immersed himself in the project, and I think she'd have been really pleased if she'd seen that. Happy to reach out and tell her so if you think it would help pave the way for future events.

I just wanted to express thanks and congratulations to all at Kenvale for the magnificent lunch provided on Thursday.

I have been to many hatted restaurants this year and can honestly say that they would have struggled to produce such fantastic dishes.

The lunch was a credit to your students and your staff.  It would be a privilege to enjoy another visit next year.

Best wishes to your graduating students for success in their career and to your staff to continue to guide students to reach such a high standard.
