    2. each Student is notified by the Provider within five working days from the date of the notice of the right to opt out of the Course, and where the Student does opt out within 20 working days of the date of the notice, a Pro Rata Refund is made to the Student for the remaining Tuition Fees, calculated from the time the Student ceased attending.
