Fees information and additional study costs

£14,990 – the tuition fees for September 2020 entry. This includes the cost of all compulsory offsite visits and study folders. You will need to meet all travel costs to Norland or your placements. Tuition fees for 2021/22 have been frozen at the same level of £14,990.

You will also pay a one-off Lifelong Learning fee, due on the first day of your first term.

Please note: tuition fees for 2022/23 and successive years are subject to annual review and may increase by up to 5% each year.

Payment can be made by direct bank transfer, debit/credit card, cheque or via Direct Debit instalments. Termly tuition fees are invoiced in approximately equal amounts and are due immediately on the first day of each term, unless collected by Direct Debit.

Termly fees collected by Direct Debit are due on or around 1 October, 1 February and 1 May. You can choose to pay your termly fees by Direct Debit over eight instalments across the academic year to help spread the cost. These are due on or around 1 October, 1 November, 1 December, 1 February, 1 March, 1 April, 1 May and 1 June.

£273 – this non-refundable fee is charged once only and is due on the first day of your first term. The charge covers the cost of all current and future bespoke individual support (in person and via social media), advice and help from the Norland Agency, support via the Norland Alumni, access to Agency events, refresher courses and drop in sessions. It has been included in the fees summary table above. Note: the fee is subject to annual review and may increase by up to 5% each year for future students.

Approximately £1,000 – the total cost of the Norland uniform, which should cover your three years of training at Norland. You will receive further information about ordering the uniform and a price list once you have been offered a place.

Approximately £160 – you will be required to provide your own sewing kit at a cost of approximately £80. In addition, you will need to purchase fabric of your choice for each sewing project and the cost of this will equate to approximately £80 over the three years.

Approximately £82 – you must complete a DBS check during Welcome Week in your first year, which currently costs £56. The recommended annual update service then costs £13 per year for your remaining two years of study, a total of £82 for your time at Norland. Without the update service an additional £56 DBS check will be required at the beginning of the Newly Qualified Nanny (NQN) year.

Approximately £200 – you are required to have a number of vaccinations and immunisation tests prior to beginning your studies. These are listed as part of our entry requirements and you will be sent detailed information. Most of these are freely available through the NHS but there may be a fee of approximately £200 for the full course of Hepatitis B injections and immunity check that you are required to have.

Norland offers you the opportunity to learn Spanish through optional lessons at a cost of £256 per year and an optional Makaton course at £150 per year.

You are responsible for meeting all travel costs to Norland or your placements. However, a contribution towards placement travel is made where a placement is more than eight miles from Bath.

Norland has a very low occurrence of students leaving our course, and we commit to doing everything possible to ensure our students succeed 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 Norland. If you decide to leave, it is important to note that tuition fees remain due for the current term. The implications of this policy are shown in the table below. View our Fees, Refund and Compensation Policy

It is important to ensure Norland 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 to 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 may 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. To provide transparency on possible future course fees, illustrative examples are provided in the table below.

Norland prides itself on creating and maintaining a curriculum that delivers good value for money for students. Our Value for Money statement provides transparency. It outlines the many ways in which Norland delivers a value-added curriculum and lifelong support for its graduates, as well as clearly presenting how tuition fees are spent.
