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.

For 2020-21, the implications of this policy are shown below:

Formal notice to end the Contact (leave College) received: Total fees that will be due 2020-21
By 10 January 2021 Term 1 £5,074 x 1 = £5,074
By 3 May 2021 Terms 1 and 2 £5,074 x 2 = £10,148
4 May 2021 or thereafter Terms 1, 2 and 3 £5,074 x 3 = £15,222

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

Formal notice to end the Contact (leave College) received: Total fees that will be due 2019-20
By 5 January 2020 Term 1 £4,950 x 1 = £4,950
By 26 April 2020 Terms 1 and 2 £4,950 x 2 = £9,900
27 April 2020 or thereafter Terms 1, 2 and 3 £4,950 x 3 = £14,850

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 2018-19, 2019-20 and 2020-21 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 2021-22 and 2022-23:

  Fee increase scenario
Year Agreed Fees 1.0% 2.5% 5.0%
2019-20 £14,850      
2020-21 £15,222      
2021-22   £15,374 £15,602 £15,983
2022-23   £15,528 £15,992 £16,782

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