UniHaven College complies with section 65 (5) of the Irish Qualifications and Quality Assurance (Education and Training) Act 2012 with respect to the requirement to provide protection to students who study on the programme should the programme cease to be taught before it has been completed for whatever reason. UniHaven Limited has approval to offer students learner protection insurance. An individual student protection insurance policy will be set up on students’ behalf. This insurance policy will finance UniHaven College’s commitment to refund to enrolled students, or to the person who paid the fees on their behalf, the monies most recently paid in respect of the programme. Learner Protection insurance is only in place when each student receives their Insurance Policy. Each learner should ensure that they receive a Learner Protection Insurance Policy in their name.
Learner Protection insurance is provided by Arachas and underwritten by Aviva Insurance Ireland DAC. Aviva Insurance Ireland DAC, trading as Aviva, is regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland. The learner protection policy provides for a refund of fees as specified in the 2012 Act. The learner protection insurance policy is governed by s.65(4)(b) of the 2012 Act.
When Ireland’s new International Education Mark (IEM) has been introduced UniHaven College will participate in the new central IEM fund that QQI will oversee.
