Course Fees
Setting and Alteration of Course Fees

(a) Course fees are set annually.  Information on course fees is published in the Prospectus or on the College Website and is accurate at the time of publication and all reasonable efforts are taken to ensure that it is correct.  However, the College reserves the right to alter course fees as a result of changes due to external factors, such as those imposed by awarding bodies and DEL.  It also reserves the right to alter fees should there be discrepancies in the fees.

Where either of these circumstances apply and this results in an increase in the course fee then:

(a) A student already enrolled will not be required to pay the additional fee.  This fee will be absorbed by the Faculty who signed off the incorrect fee but in Year 1 only.
(b) All other students who enrol after the change to the fee has been made will be required to pay the new increased fee.

(c) The new revised fee will be published on the website and corrected on Northern Regional College systems and will apply from the date it is published on the website.

Where either of these circumstances apply and this results in an decrease in the course fee then:

(a) A student already enrolled on the course will be refunded the difference in the fee.  

(b) The new revised fee will be published on the website and corrected on Northern Regional College systems and will apply from the date it is published on the website.

Tuition Fees for part-time courses will remain the same for each year for the duration of the course eg 2 or 3 years.

Additional Fees – some additional fees may have to be paid directly to the awarding body.  You will be notified of these at time of enrolment.

Reduced Fees
