Refund Policy

Tuition & Examination Fees

Tuition fees are payable to Limerick School of Music at the commencement of each term, in September and January each year.  Fees may be paid online or by cheque, bank draft or postal order made payable to LCETB.  In addition, examination fees may be applied for all practical and theory examinations at Limerick School of Music.


Fees must be paid in advance of commencement of programmes and all examinations must be paid before a student can be entered for an examination.  LSOM encourages all learners to pay fees online at prior to commencing any programme.


There are no exemptions available.  In cases of financial hardship, learners may request a fee reduction or fee waiver by writing to the Principal who will make an appropriate recommendation to the board of the LCETB.


Learners may apply for a refund of fees by submitting a written request fully outlining the reason(s) for the refund and supplying documentation if required.  Each application will be dealt with on its merits.  Fees will be refunded on a sliding scale, determined by the number of weeks into the term that the learner has applied for a refund, i.e. each term is 17 weeks – refunds will be based on the following formula: full fee ÷ 17 weeks x remaining weeks of tuition, learners will not be entitled to a refund after week four.
