Terms & Conditions


The Website Owner, including subsidiaries and affiliates ("Website" or "Website Owner" or "we" or "us" or "our") provides the information contained on this website or any of the pages comprising the website ("website") to visitors ("visitors") (cumulatively referred to as "you" or "your" hereinafter) subject to the terms and conditions set out in these website terms and conditions, the privacy policy and any other relevant terms and conditions, policies and notices which may be applicable to a specific section or module of this website

2. Course Admission Criteria & Entry Requirements

Some of the courses listed on this website have entry requirements. It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that he/she fulfils the minimum entry requirements for a chosen course, and to ensure that the chosen course is suitable for his/her needs and level of ability.  Once an applicant accepts an offer of a place on the course, he/she agrees to abide by the rules and regulations of the College.  If the applicant does not reach the acceptable minimum criteria for the course, PCI College has the right to withdraw them from the course.

3. Student Requirements

Students are required to have sufficient IT skills and access to appropriate IT facilities to participate in their chosen course.  All students are assigned an individual email address and given access to an online Student Portal. The Portal includes course materials, an online library and College announcements and students are required to upload all written assignments online. Email is the primary communication method of the College and all students are requested to access their individual email account on a regular basis to ensure receipt of all notices.

Students with a disability may require adjustments to facilitate their learning. These adjustments will be fully evaluated by PCI College.  Students are requested to make the College aware of any disability, special need or learning support requirement on the application.

Students may be requested to participate in Garda Vetting procedures in relation to programme and accreditation requirements.

4. Fees & Application Process

Applicants should complete and submit the course Application Form accompanied by an initial deposit / full payment as indicated on the course page.  Where an interview is required, the full details of the Application Process are listed on the relevant course page.


Tuition Fees are non-refundable in all personal circumstances. The balance of fees for tuition is payable, in full, before the course commences, or by availing of an agreed PCI College Direct Debit Payment Plan. Tuition Fees do not include costs of Additional Requirements such as Personal Therapy, Supervision and CPD. 


Listed discounts can only be used by students and graduates of the PCI College BSc (Honours) degree in Counselling & Psychotherapy course only. Anyone who uses a discount and who is not a student or graduate of the BSc degree will be asked to pay the full fee amount or will be removed from enrolment in the course.  Discounts may only be used where applicable i.e. when it is stated that there is a discount available for the listed course. 

Once a student is enrolled on a programme of study, no part of course fees are refundable or transferable.  No refund will be made in any circumstances to students who fail to attend classes or who commence a course and subsequently feel that the course does not suit him/her.  Students who are having their fees paid or part-paid by a third party should be aware that responsibility for payment of fees and liaison with these bodies rests solely with the student and not with PCI College.

The College makes every effort to provide the Programme as described, and to avoid altering course dates, tutors, locations etc. However, should any changes be necessary, you will be notified at the earliest opportunity.  All courses run subject to demand and the formation of a viable class cohort.  A full refund will be given to all applicants in the event that the class does not proceed.  

Where a student receives a refund and chooses to keep the refunded fees on their account, this credit shall only be applicable to programmes within that programme category (e.g. Counselling & Psychotherapy or CPD or Psychology). Credit will remain on the students account for a period of two years from the date of refund.


For all course bookings, the student will have the right to cancel their enrolment on the course if the Student gives notice of cancellation to PCI College within fourteen calendar days following the day on which PCI College received the Student’s Course Booking Form and/or Payment.  This cooling-off period will not apply where a student enrolled on the Online Introduction to Counselling & Psychotherapy course has already downloaded the course material from the PCI College Student Portal. If a Student exercises his/her right to cancel during this fourteen day period, he/she will receive a full refund of all amounts already paid less the cost of any services already performed by PCI College before the end of the fourteen day period. Specifically, where the Student enrolled on Online Introduction to Counselling & Psychotherapy or Blended Learning course has received log-in details to the PCI College Student Portal and Course Material as part of the Services, €100 will be deducted from the refund amount to cover the cost of Portal set-up and access.)
