I paid a £250 deposit by debit card for a course I was intending to go on but after 3 days I realised that the course was not for me. The course was not due to start until Oct 2020 so I gave plenty of notice.  I asked for a full refund of the deposit but have been told that they do not offer refunds but in my case will give me £125! It does not say anywhere on their website or in the paperwork that the deposit is refundable, my reason for cancelling the course is genuine, I have since emailed back to ask that I want a full refund but so far no response (it’s only been 4 days). There was only 3 days between me paying the deposit and cancelling the course. Does anyone know if they are legally bound to refund my deposit? Many thanks.

    Perhaps your post may be more appropriate in the Consumer Right forum, more advice there.  :)
