How much will it cost?

NCT offers many bursaries to reduce the cost of training, some of these are up to 70% of fees for those who go on to work with NCT.

£6,890  for each full time year study spread across 1 - 4  years depending on whether you study full or part-time, or you can do individual modules. Each 15 credit module will be £903.

For those that want to work with NCT, we are pleased to announce that NCT and the University of Worcester will be able to offer a non-repayable grant to students who are not eligible for a government student loan in 2017-18. It will be equal to £2,000 for 120 credits (full time) which means fees payable will be £4,890. For part time study, it will be equal to £250 for each 15  credits studied  which means fees  for each 15 credits will be £653.

Understanding the neonatal unit experience module is part funded by Abbvie.

Please note that there is a different fee structure for students living in Scotland.
