Terms and conditions

Important – please read carefully for all course bookings.

We ask you to please read the terms and conditions carefully; we want you to be fully informed and if there is anything you would like explaining more fully, please ask, we are here to help.

NMA provides students with the flexibility to study in a way that suits their own circumstances, working within the parameters set by our university partner. In return, we simply ask students to follow the guidelines in their Student Handbook, to work closely with their Tutor and take responsibility for their learning.

All Courses

The prospectus and website are intended as a guide to course content only. The National Motorsport Academy (NMA) may need to make changes to course content or to a programme if necessary. All enrolments received by the NMA are accepted on the basis that these terms and conditions have been read before you enrol.

After you have paid a fee or enrolled online with NMA, you have fourteen days in which to change your mind. This should be confirmed to NMA in writing even if you notify us by telephone first. After fourteen days, you are deemed to have started your course. Due to the volume of administration involved with the enrolment and registration of a student, course fees cannot be refunded after this point. Please note that all fees paid are per level, not for the entire course. There are three levels in the BSc (Hons) Degree, one level in the BSc (Hons) – Final Year Top-Up and one level in the Master’s (MSc) Degree.


Payment in Full

Course fees can be paid in full before the start of the course and a discount is offered.

Payment by Instalments

Although course fees are due in full before the start of a course, as a concession, you may pay fees by monthly instalments. Instalment payments will begin on 1st day of the month following enrolment (if you enrol in the final week of any month, payments will begin one month later). Charges for any unpaid cheques or declined card payments will be passed on to you. Any change to your start date will not alter the schedule of payment. Students paying by instalments are liable for the full degree level fee, even if you withdraw from your course or fail to submit assignments.

Fee review

Fees are reviewed annually on 1st August each year. Degree tuition fees for the next level may be subject to a small increase but will still continue to offer excellent value compared with other University tuition fees.

UK Only – Student Loans

Students who would like to pay for their degree using a student loan should follow the link to Student Finance England or Wales and apply online. NMA will send you a link to these sites after your application has been approved. Once you have applied to Student Finance NMA will require your application number before it can finalise your enrolment. Should you not start all of your predicted modules, part of your student loan may be reclaimed by Student Finance England or Wales and you will be liable for any outstanding NMA fees. Should you decide to withdraw from the course, you must notify NMA in writing.

Submission of assignments

Students agree to submit their assignments by the due date. If for any reason you are unable to do so, you must contact your Tutor immediately and before the deadline order to avoid being classed as ‘withdrawn’ from the course. Withdrawn students will still be liable for any outstanding tuition fees.

As a part-time student, you are only allowed to submit a maximum of four modules in any one year; with no more than a total value of 120 UCAS credits. Credit values can vary in Degree courses so you may wish to ascertain what can be completed and submitted beforehand by contacting the NDA.

There can be no period of Intermit allowed until a minimum of 25% of the current level has been completed and submitted (excluding the Induction module).


The National Motorsport Academy (NMA) is part of The NDA Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation.

All profits are re-invested back into the Foundation for the benefit of its students; this maintains low tuition fees, enabling more students to study flexibly for a degree.
