Terms and Conditions
These terms constitute a binding agreement between you and NALP Training T/AS National Paralegal College (NPC) and by completing the enrolment form and paying the full amount, or deposit for any course, you confirm that any work you submit for assessment is your own work and that you are fully aware of the following terms:
Eligibility to Enrol for the Course:
By signing and submitting the enrolment form, you agree that you have read the eligibility criteria for the course and that you fulfill these criteria. Evidence of such eligibility should be produced upon the request of NPC. If it transpires after enrolment that you clearly do not fulfill the eligibility requirements, or that you fail to comply with requests to produce evidence and you decide not to continue with the course, no refund of course fees shall be made.
Upon receipt of the course fees, or if paying by instalments on receipt of the initial payment and providing evidence that instalments have been arranged, the course material will be delivered by email within seven working days.
Refund / Return / Cancellation Policy:
If you cancel within 14 days after paying the deposit or full amount for the course but before receiving the course material, you can get a full refund of the amount paid less £50 for administration costs. You can also cancel within 10 days of the receipt of the study material supplied and will receive a refund of the full amount paid, less the sum of £150 to cover administration costs and study materials. No refunds will be made in any other circumstances.
You are responsible for managing your own learning and must timetable your own studies.
The overall time limit to complete the course is 2 years for the Level 3 Certificate or Diploma, Level 4 Diploma and Level 7 Diploma qualifications. There is an overall time limit to complete the Level 3 Award, Part One of the Level 4 Diploma or Part Two of the Level 4 Diploma of one year. There is an overall period of Six Months to complete a Level 3, Level 4 and Level 7 Single Unit Subject. Failure to complete the course within this time period will require the learner to re-enroll. Any failure by you to manage your own studies or any personal circumstances which may mean that you are unable, for any reason, to continue your studies, or your studies fall behind, are no reasons for failing to pay any instalments as and when they fall due or any grounds for cancelling the course.
NPC takes a hard line on plagiarism. Plagiarism is defined as: 'the practice of taking someone else's work, ideas or text and passing it off as your own'. There is no need to do external research to complete the assignments, since all assignments are based on the NALP Course Material provided. However, If a learner wishes to use researched information then this must be of an appropriate length, put in quotes and referenced to indicate the source, even if that source is the NALP Course Material. Wholesale texts that have been copied and pasted from either external sources or the NALP Course material whether referenced or not, will not be acceptable. Students who commit plagiarism in their assignments, will be failed automatically. If a student fails their assignment due to plagiarism, serious consequences could ensue, and they may be expelled from NPC and not permitted to complete the course. If you have any doubts as to what amounts to 'plagiarism', please contact us and we will put you in touch with a tutor.
Your privacy is extremely important to us so we only use the information you provide about yourself and/or your company to provide our services or to help us to improve our services to you.
We do not share information collected with any third party except to the extent necessary to provide the services within the terms and conditions agreed, or where necessary to fulfil our regulatory or legal obligations.
If you have any queries or concerns regarding your data, or believe that the data we hold about you is incorrect, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Assignments and Marking Policy:
You have to pass all assignments to gain the full qualification.
You have 3 attempts overall for each assignment. The first two are free of charge. Failure to achieve a pass mark on the second attempt will require a student to pay a fee of £20 for the third attempt. Please note: there is no feedback given but all assignments are based on Learning Outcomes and Assesment Criteria located within the Qualification Specifications. There are also sample questions available on the website for guidance. Students can also receive tutor assistance at any time by contacting info@nationalparalegals, or phoning us on 0207 112 8034.

Students have a one year affiliate membership to NALP included in the enrolment fee for the Level 3, Level 4 and Level 7 Qualifications. There is no NALP Affiliate Membership included for students enrolling for Single Unit Subjects but students are encouraged to pay for their membership separately. Affiliates are required to renew annually whilst studying. NALP full qualifications can only be awarded to current NALP Members. Upon successful completion of the course any remaining months will be upgraded to the appropriate level of membership gained.
Students are required to notify NPC in writing before or at the time of enrolment of any disability that will effect their ability to do the work. NB: Evidence will be required to be submitted for our records.
If you are in need of extra time to complete an assignment because of any special consideration that needs to be taken into account, please contact NPC prior to the deadline date to request the Policy on how to do this.
