Students who are not eligible for funding from their local authority may wish to consider studying privately at RNC.
If you are considering funding your own placement you can choose from any of the courses that we offer, subject to your current level of skills and experience. We would also encourage you to come and visit us to get a better understanding of what we can offer.
If you think RNC is right for you, the next step is to complete our application form. We will then book you in for a detailed Pre-Entry Assessment. This is an opportunity to meet the tutors and support team who you would be working with and to ask any questions you may have, as well as for us to assess your suitability for the course.
If the Pre-Entry Assessment shows that RNC would be a good match for you, we will then be able to make you a formal offer. This will be personalised to your own requirements and in addition to your chosen course will include any mobility training, independence support and general IT needs you may have.
At this stage we will also be able to confirm the exact cost of your programme and to discuss a possible start date.
The costs will include accommodation and meals, although some students who are local to RNC choose to attend daily, depending on their existing mobility and independence skills.
If you think you may be interested in funding yourself to study at RNC contact our Student Recruitment Team for an initial chat and to arrange a tour.
We can also answer general questions about fees at this stage, although we will not be able to give an exact figure for the cost of your placement until after the Pre-Entry Assessment.
