PROFESSIONAL BODY MEMBERSHIP Courses leading to a professional qualification require students to register with the professional body. Any costs, including annual subscriptions, are payable directly to the professional body by the student and will be discussed at the start of the course. FEES PAID BY AN EMPLOYER OR OTHER ORGANISATIONS A learner may have made an agreement for course and other fees to be paid by their employer. This is an agreement made between those two parties. Where it has been confirmed as part of the enrolment process that the fees for the learner are to be paid by a sponsor or an employer, then formal and written confirmation of this must be submitted to the College. If you require the fee authorisation form, email admissions@hsdc.ac.uk to request a copy.

The College must receive the signed fee authorisation form or a purchase order at the point of enrolment, otherwise the learner will be asked to pay the full fees due. It is also important to note that if you (as the student) withdraw from the course, the employer will still be responsible for payment of the course fees due.
