  • course fees and refunds
  • course or provider transfers
  • course progress or attendance
  • cancellation of enrolment
  • accommodation or work arranged by your provider
  • incorrect advice given by an education agent.
  • if you believe we have failed to take action or are taking too long to take some action. This might include (for example), failing to provide your results in the normal timeframe, or failing to provide services included in your written agreement with United POP Australia.

The OSO may not be able to investigate your complaint if you have not already exhausted our formal internal complaints process as above.
