Learner Protection at Citas College

Citas College, in partnership with O’Driscoll O’Neil Insurance and Pay to Study provide Learner Protection in line with ILEP requirements to offer students peace of mind in terms of  fee security and guaranteed course sustainability.  Citas College, which was established in 1996 and incorporated in 2000, has a proven track record of delivering quality education in Ireland for almost twenty years.


Learner Protection through the O’Driscoll O’Neil Insurance

Citas College has Learner Protection insurance provided by O’Driscoll O’Neil which guarantees student fees in the unlikely event of college closure.  Authorized by the Central Bank, this learner protection guarantee complies with the ILEP requirements (that all programmes of 3 months or more duration have in place arrangements for the Protection of Enrolled Learners to ensure learners have the opportunity to complete their programme of study).

Learner Protection insurance is only in place when each student receives their certificate.


Partnership between Citas College and PaytoStudy

“Escrow Account facilities” describes the mechanism that enable student funds to be held by an independent third party and released only to the payee account on the fulfillment of stated conditions. Students coming to study at Citas College on an International Student visa, can pay their fees into the Citas College PaytoStudy Escrow account. All funds will be held by PaytoStudy on behalf of the student and Citas College pending the visa decision. Where the visa decision is positive, the funds are transferred to Citas College. If the visa application is refused, the funds (less any pre-agreed charges) are refunded to the student.

Payments can be made using all standard banking methods as well as credit & debit cards. PaytoStudy are the leaders in money management and have a reputation for excellence in service. Interpay Ltd, trading as PaytoStudy, is regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland.
