Fees and Support
As a private college, NTC receives no support from government sources. The College is supported by gifts and donations from Churches and from individual donors, and this allows student fees to be set at a competitive rate. The fees for the upcoming year are available from the download area.
The College's certificate, diploma, BA and MA courses have been designated by the Department for Education and Skills for Mandatory Award Status. This means that awards are payable by the Student Finance England for European Union students who are admitted to the College.
Prospective undergraduate students should apply online to Student Finance England for financial support.
Full-time students from England and Wales are eligible for a tuition loan (£6000 for 2012-13), and 'maintenance support' of up to £6,500 (a combination of grant and loan). Part time awards are also available. The loan begins to be repaid once you have started work, and are earning more than £21,000 per year. Students from other parts of the UK (Scotland and Ireland) have slightly different arrangements, and should contact the relevant body (ie, Student Awards Agency for Scotland or Student Finance Northern Ireland). Students from other areas of the EU are eligible for tuition loans (but not maintenance support). The College offers academic excellence entrance scholarships for undergraduate students who achieve the equivalent of 'ABB' at A level.
NTC is also approved for US student loans (Direct Loans). These are available to US students who are studying at least half time, and who are NOT resident in the US during the course of their NTC studies. Normally, these would be full time US students who are in residence at or near the College. This excludes, for instance, part-time PhD students who live in the US but come to Mancehster for their residency periods. 'Smart Loans' from Sallie Mae are also available for US students, and these are not restricted in the same way as other direct government loans so are available for part-time and distnace-learning students from the US.
The College has a range of internal bursary support for postgraduates. Further information about postgraduate financial aid (and an application form) is available in the download area on this site. Please return the completed document along with your application form if you are intending to apply for bursary support.
Students who withdraw from classes, or who change their enrolment status from 'credit' to 'audit' after the 'Last Day for Registration Revision' published in the college calendar will not normally be eligible for any tuition refund for the semester.
Undergraduates who are members of the Church of the Nazarene may be eligible for some bursary funds provided by the church to members of the denomination. If you are not eligible for these, you may still be qualified for scholarships and prizes in your second or subsequent years at the College. A limited amount of money is available for this, but these awards will not meet the costs of your tuition fees at the College.
