Payment options for international students

£286 – 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% or the Consumer Price Index (if higher) 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 £120 – you will be required to provide your own sewing kit at a cost of approximately £60. In addition, you will need to purchase materials of your choice for each sewing project and the cost of this will equate to approximately £60 over the three years.

Approximately £78 – you must complete a DBS check, which currently costs £52. The recommended annual update service then costs £13 per year for your remaining two years of study, a total of £78 for your time at Norland. Without the update service an additional £52 DBS check will be required at the beginning of the Newly Qualified Nanny (NQN) year.

If you are a non-UK based student, you must obtain a police certificate or certificate of good conduct from that country as well as completing the DBS application at the start of your course. The process, and the name of the certificate, varies from country to country. Further information is available from the UK government criminal records checks for overseas applicants webpage

Norland offers you the opportunity to learn Spanish through optional lessons at a cost of £270 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.

International students must also pay to apply for a Student visa from outside the UK, which currently costs £348, and a mandatory immigration health surcharge to access the National Health Service (NHS), the current rate for which is £470 per year. If you don’t have UK qualifications, you’ll need to arrange for the UK ENIC to confirm your qualifications and there is a charge for this service.

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 ordinarily increase by up to 5% each year. However, should the official Consumer Price Index (CPI) exceed 5% then fees may increase by up to CPI. 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.

Value for Money statement

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 for its students. These include two distinct qualifications, 20 teaching hours per week, almost half of the academic year spent in fully-supported placements, value-added training and activities, valuable employment skills delivery, and the arranged and fully-supported full-time paid Newly Qualified Nanny year (for which no tuition fees are due). In addition, Norlanders benefit from access to their own dedicated employment agency, an active continuous professional development programme and lifelong support. Our Value for Money statement also clearly presents a breakdown of how tuition fees are spent.
