It is possible to refund the tuition fee payment in case the residence permit application is declined. The refund is made only within the same academic year when the student is selected to study.
In case the applicant has withdrawn the residence permit application or any way interrupted the residence permit process and forced Immigration Service (MIGRI) to abort the application process, he/she is not able to apply for the tuition fee refund.
Please note, the applicant has to be able to prove that he/she has applied for the residence permit as soon as possible after receiving the admission notice and paying the tuition fee as instructed. The residence permit needs to be applied within 30 days from notification of admission.
In case of negative residence permit decision, the refund can be made based on written application by applicant and the requests are processed case by case. The application must include the negative decision from the Immigration Service MIGRI. Administration fee of 250 euros is deducted from the refund. If the applicant does not submit the negative residence permit decision within the two semesters, the tuition fee is no longer returned.
If the student does not receive the residence permit decision within the academic year he/she was admitted, it is possible to restore the study right once for the following academic year.
Exception due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021 – 2022
Bachelor students who have started their studies in distance learning mode for the academic year 2021 – 2022 and wish to withdraw after receiving a negative decision, 50% of the tuition fee may be refunded if they choose not to continue their studies in distance learning mode for the spring semester 2022. The negative decision from MIGRI and the notice of resignation must be submitted to KAMK by 31 December 2021 at the latest.
The paid fee will not be returned if the student resigns from his/her studies during the academic year. The tuition fee will not be refunded in case the studies have been offered online/in distance learning mode.
