Professional Year Programs - Terms and Conditions

General Information

I acknowledge the following Terms and Conditions in regard to my enrolment in the Professional Year Program with Navitas Professional.

The program consists of a 44 week† course and includes both theoretical coursework and a professional internship experience as part of the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) gazetted Professional Year Program.

  • Any variation in these Terms and Conditions must be in writing and signed on behalf of Navitas Professional.
  • I understand that I am expected to attend 100% of classes and must complete all of the assessments. Please note that Navitas Professional will not approve any holidays or non-emergency medical absences from the program. All absences must be supported by documentary evidence such as medical certificate, police report or other. Failure to achieve the minimum required attendance‡ is an automatic failure of the program. I understand and agree that I am not entitled to a refund of any fees or other charges paid under these Terms and Conditions. I understand that all personal holidays are to be scheduled during the allocated study breaks.
  • I understand the program is aimed at developing me as a professional, and therefore I am required to use my best endeavours to fulfil this obligation. If my behaviour is deemed unacceptable by Navitas Professional, my enrolment may be cancelled, and I agree that I will not be entitled to a refund of any fees or other charges paid under these Terms and Conditions.
  • I understand I will be required to attend organised activities as part of the program, including the internship placement.
  • I authorise Navitas Professional, including the host company for the internship placement, to obtain medical treatment for me should Navitas Professional including host company, deem such action necessary. I agree to indemnify Navitas Professional or any host company for any expenses, loss or damage or liability of whatsoever nature occasioned as a result of authorising and arranging any emergency medical treatment.
  • I understand my personal information will be made available to the relevant professional body and the DHA; and other Australian government bodies as required by law.
  • I understand that the successful completion of a Professional Year Program does not guarantee that I will receive permanent residence.
  • I acknowledge that Navitas Professional will arrange my internship in a host company which matches my field of study. I understand that I will need to attend interviews for the placement; and that the selected host company is at the final discretion of Navitas Professional.
  • I understand that I am required to have 100% attendance throughout the internship period and to complete the work assigned.
  • I acknowledge that Navitas Professional takes no responsibility for my visa.
