Transfer from One Course to Another Within the BMC International College

Students can apply in writing for transfer from one course to another offered within the BMC International College. Such transfer applications will be considered by the Principal or Academic Director and transfers will only be allowed if the following conditions are satisfied:

  • The student fulfils the academic and experience requirements for the new course;
  • The course which the student originally enrolled for has not started. Our Refund Policy will apply in this case; and
  • The student is able to complete the course within the stipulated duration.

International students need to apply for a new student visa and the transfer will come into effect only when the ICA approves the new student’s pass application.

Students should be prepared to do the new programme in any of the branches of the BMC International College, if a particular branch which offered the programme the student initially enrolled for, does not offer the new programme the student wants to study.

If a student transfers from one course to another within the BMC International College, then the tuition fee is 100% transferable to the new course provided the original course the student has enrolled for has not started and the transfer request made in writing is received more than 30 days before the original course starts.

If the transfer request received is less than 30 days before the original course starts, our Refund Policy shall apply. In this case, the student may have to top up the course fee should the amount to be transferred is less than the new course fee.

In the event that the fee for the transferred course is higher, the student is required to pay the difference upon the transfer being affected.

If the differential is in favour of the student, the school will refund the student within 14 days of effecting the transfer. (Course has not started. The transfer request date is more than 30 days before the course starts or within the 7-day cooling off period.)

At present, there is no transfer fee imposed. However, BMC may impose such a fee if the need arises and it will be published in our marketing materials including our website and Student Handbook.

The maximum time frame for assessing and replying to any request for transfer is 7 working days.
