We regret that we do not offer Payment Plans
UK College of Holistic
Training is a small private educational business and like many other
businesses since the recession, we have been challenged by the economic
situation and this has led us to make some necessary changes.
The changes we have made
are twofold: (a) reducing our administration costs and overheads
wherever possible and (b) introducing and developing new courses.
One of the biggest drains
on our resources in the past has been the operation of payment plans, which led to
extra time spent answering queries, negotiating, chasing late payments, and
extra accounting time. All this extra work with reduced and uncertain
cash flow is now unsustainable and has prevented us from concentrating
on course development as much as we would wish.
We have therefore decided
not to offer payment plans of any kind for new enrolments. This applies both to new and existing students.
Already, most of our students have been paying in full, and those who
have not have had a disproportionate effect on our workflow and often
created more work than several full-paying students combined.
Of course we know that
some of our competitors offer payment plans - but they tend to be
high-volume operators that operate on very low profit margins, and they
spend huge amounts on advertising - most of their tuition fees may be
going on web ads. The textbook-based model which
have used for most of our own courses has a dedicated following with
many students returning for further courses.
It is still possible for
most people to spread payments for one of our courses, by paying us via PayPal and using a credit card. Alternatively, wait until you
can afford the fee and then apply. We realise that this policy might
make some students go elsewhere, but we believe we will make up for any
shortfall by continuing to offer innovative courses not easily available
by distance learning, as well as more popular subjects.
We know that some people
who would like to do our courses are on low incomes and are struggling.
However, we do not receive any financial aid or funding and we have
stayed away from government funding schemes in order to remain fully in
control of the way we do business and the courses we offer, without
being strangled by red tape. We are not bankers or moneylenders. Payment
plans are essentially interest-free credit. We are not in the banking or
lending business, we are in the course business and we ask you to
respect that. We are not a substitute for your credit cards, savings or
or other ways of budgeting. Banks don't sell courses, and we don't offer
We are offering a service
for which we need to be paid promptly in order to remain in business
ourselves as we have done for over 20 years. That is a simple reality.
We need to cut out unnecessary work and payment delays in order to
thrive. Some competitors who had thousands of students have
disappeared because their business models were ultimately unsustainable. We hope that serious applicants will respect our stance,
and we look forward to welcoming many of you to various exciting new
courses over the coming years.
