Course fees

We don’t want money matters to get in the way of your learning with us.  For many students, courses at NHC are free.  For students aged 19 or over, you may need to pay some course fees when you start your course. We try to keep fees as low as possible, whilst making sure that we can offer you a really great course that will help you get where you want to be in life.

Below, we’ve summarised what different students may need to contribute to the cost of their course.  To find out exactly what the position is for the course you want to follow, just have a chat with our team at an open day or evening, check out the website or give us a call.
