It is a clear-cut consumer case. It would be best to send a legal notice first and then file the case in Consumer court. LawRato has a Legal Notice service which can help you and it is real cheap. Rest, you may consult a professional from your region.

Dear sir the educational institutions are covered by consumers protection act, if they fail to provide the services as agreed than you have got right to file a complaint before the forum, but you have to prove that they were negligent in providing the services as are required from them

You can approach to the consumer court. Provided if are having proof of fee paid and legible excuse to refund, such as you complained to the incharge or head of that institute regarding lack of quality, etc.
