Ask us any questions about NCS, run by The Challenge...

What is your absence policy?

You are eligible to graduate from NCS if you complete 100% of the programme. However, we understand that not everyone is able to attend every day of the NCS programme. 

Depending on the reason for the absence, we may ask you to make up 100% of hours missed to graduate. We will send you an email at the end of your programme if this applies to you.

Please see the table below to see how many days of the programme you can miss.

Programme model Maximum days of absence
18 day summer programme 4.5 days
14 day summer programme 3.5 days
11 day autumn programme 2.5 days

If you plan to miss some of the programme before you have started NCS, we may suggest you change to a different programme date.
