Norland Refund and Compensation Policy

Norland has a very low occurrence of students leaving our course, and we commit to doing everything possible to ensure our students succeed at College and cope well with the challenges of living away from home, often for the first time. We are properly resourced to support all aspects of our students throughout their degree and diploma training, and our pastoral care is particularly strong. 

However, due to unforeseen events and situations students sometimes choose to leave College. If a student decides to leave, it is important to note that tuition fees remain due for the current term as well as the next term.

For 2019-20, the implications of this is shown below:

Formal notice to end the Contact (leave College) received up to: Total fees that will be due 2019-20
6 January 2020 Term 1 and 2 £4,950 * 2 = £9,900
Thereafter Terms 1, 2 and 3 £4,950 * 3 = £14,850

For 2018-19, the implications of this is shown below:

Formal notice to end the Contact (leave College) received up to: Total fees that will be due 2019-20
7 January 2019 Term 1 and 2 £4,829 * 2 = £9,658
Thereafter Terms 1, 2 and 3 £4,829 * 3 = £14,487

 

Tuition Fees Increases

It is important to ensure Norland College is properly resourced to offer the very best student and Newly Qualified Nanny (NQN) experience, as well as life-long support for our Norlanders. It is therefore critical that fees are able reflect this commitment, and consequently our core tuition fees are reviewed annually and set (and published on our website) at least one year in advance, and will increase by up to 5% each year. The level of any increase is set with reference to student affordability, anticipated inflationary pressure and necessary course enhancement.

Fees for 2017-18, 2018-19 and 2019-20 are confirmed in the details above and relate to each specific academic year. Fees beyond these dates have not yet been set. However, to provide transparency on possible future course fees, the table below shows three illustrative example scenarios, for a year on year tuition fee increase of 1%, 2.5% and 5%, in 2020-21 and 2021-22:

  Fee increase scenario
Year Agreed Fees 1.0% 2.5% 5.0%
2017-18 £14,133      
2018-19 £14,487      
2019-20 £14,850      
2020-21   £14,999 £15,221 £15,593
2021-22   £15,148 £15,602 £16,372

The inclusion of a particular future fee increase scenario should not be assumed to mean we consider it likely to occur.

Financial Assistance

Government Loans and Grants

Students from England

For students to be eligible for Student Loan Company funding, they must be studying a designated course. Courses at Norland College are designated each year by the Department for Education. This course has been re-designated for the 2018-19 academic year and therefore you will be able to apply for student loan funding through the Student Loans Company. A register of designated providers is provided by the new regulator for Higher Education, the ‘Office for Students’ (OfS) here.

For 2019-20 funding, Norland College is currently applying for registration with the OfS. Registration will ensure that eligible students continue to be able to access student loan financing. Registration is expected to be confirmed in September 2018.

Loans for fees for students from England

You can apply to Student Finance England for a student loan of up to £6,165 per year to cover part of the cost of your tuition fees. The amount you apply for is paid directly to the College by Student Finance England. You will be responsible for paying the difference between the fee loan borrowed and the total tuition fee payable to Norland.

The loan is not means tested and you will only need to start paying back the loan once you have left the course and are earning over £25,000.
