Fees and Finance

Fee Structure

While deciding on a law school, tuition fee and living expense is of important concern. The money involved on occasions can in fact become the overbearing determinant. Prospective candidates are usually beset with the following questions: Can I afford the education cost? Will the investment prove worthwhile? Reaching a decision is based upon the pay back prospects of the degree. Contemporaneously speaking, the financial security offered by a law degree is next to none, with prospects poised to grow further. Which coupled with the fact of one’s degree coming from a prestigious institution such as our own and you can rest assured that you have made a wise financial investment in your future. To answer the first question it should suffice to say that we have a competitive fee structure and provisions for financial aid; and add to that the relatively low living cost afforded by Cuttack and you have a surprisingly affordable education.

Eearning while Learning

EARNING WHILE LEARNING is a student aid scheme instituted by NLUO to help students tide over financial insufficiency. Under this scheme NLUO allows students to serve in the library in lieu of remuneration to be decided by the University. Owing to limited positions, students will be required to apply for these posts at the beginning of the semester. The University will select candidates on the basis of merit and need.

Education Loan

Escalating education costs have opened up loan alternatives like never before. As a resident Indian student you will not have to find your own money to pay the fee before you start at NLUO. You can apply for student educational loan to cover your tuition fee at NLUO from any nationalized or scheduled banks. A little effort into how much money you will need to cover your educational expenses and what funding or loan is available with what interests from which bank or concerns can help you enormously in managing your finance. It is worth mentioning here that educational loans are not commercial loans. They are available with relatively low interest rates.
