Congratulations! You’ve received your acceptance letter and confirmed that you’ll take up your place at NTC.
If you are planning to apply for a loan or grant with Student Finance, do this as soon as possible. This will help ensure that you receive your funding from the start of your first semester. Contact Student Finance to apply. Please be sure to choose Nazarene Theological College as your provider, rather than the University of Manchester, and note that there are separate course options with student finance depending on whether you are starting in September or January, and whether you are full time or part-time. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Registrar.
Learning and Disability Support
If you have additional support needs, you may have met with our Learning Support Tutor during your application process with us. If you didn’t, be sure to contact us. Our Learning Support Tutor can talk with you about the ways in which we can help you succeed in your studies, and can guide you through the process of applying for Disability Support Allowance. The sooner you complete the DSA application process, the sooner you will be able to access funding for additional support. To discuss Learning Support in more detail, please contact the Learning Support Co-ordinator for the College, Helen Stocker.
Start of Term Pack
In July each year we send out a start-of-term pack to all new students starting in September. The pack includes:
- Welcome letters from the Dean, Chaplain and Student Council
- The Autumn timetable
- A list of units you’ll need to take in the coming semester, specific to your programme
- A list of fees
- An orientation week timetable
If you haven’t received this by August, please contact the Registrar.
The first week of the Autumn semester is an orientation week. You’ll receive a timetable for this in your start of term pack. Orientation week is a full week of events to help you adjust to your studies with us and to welcome you into the college community.
The week includes registration, community meals, Student Council activities and outings, worship, student finance advice, placement orientation, library orientation, study skills training, BBQ and commissioning service, and more!

NTC has around 30 ensuite study-bedrooms on campus. The residence is self-catering with kitchenettes available for each part of the residence area.
If you are interested in applying for on-campus accommodation, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to obtain an accommodation application form. Please do this well in advance of the start of semester to ensure you don’t miss out on a room.

You’ll be sent a full list of fees in your start of term pack. You can also view them online HERE.
During registration week students will need to pay all fees in full or provide evidence of approval from student finance for a tuition loan. In certain circumstances, a payment plan may be arranged with the finance office.
Please note that student finance tuition loans do not cover the Manchester University fee.
Students on placement programmes will also need to pay the Practice Tutor fee and a DBS check fee (the cost of the DBS check can usually be reimbursed by your placement).
