*Important Notice, regarding adjustment of fee, for all groups starting in September 2023*
The NSG is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing high-quality Gestalt psychotherapy training. We strive to ensure that our fees remain affordable while maintaining the standard of education and resources necessary for your learning experience.
Despite rising costs and inflation, we have kept our fees unchanged since 2014. However, we recently learned that the accommodation center and the venue we rent for trainings have raised their prices, prompting us to adjust our fees. We apologize for the delayed notice.
We want to be transparent about this change and assure you that it will only be a 10% increase. Even after this adjustment, the fee at NSG remains significantly lower than that of the only other EAP accredited institute in the Netherlands, with a difference of approximately €2000. Operating as a non-profit organization, means that all the income we generate goes directly towards essential expenses, namely:
Venue rentals (Amsterdam)
Meals & accommodation during all esidential weekends
Administration/ coordination costs
Supervision/ quality assurance (by the Italian Institute www.ipsig.it)
External assessor fees
Certification chamber fees
Website/ Marketing/ Open Day Venue costs
It is important to note that a significant portion of our work is carried out on a pro bono basis, reflecting our commitment to providing you with the best learning experience possible.
The reasons for the tuition fee adjustment are as follows:
1. Increase in Conference Center Fee: We have experienced a substantial 30% increase in the fee charged by the conference center.
2. Higher Costs at the Amsterdam Venue: The fees for utilizing the Amsterdam venue, where a significant portion of our training activities occur, have also increased this year.
3. International Cohort and Trainers: We have made efforts to create an international cohort at the NSG, which has involved inviting trainers from various parts of the world too provide diversity and inclusion. Accommodating these international trainers comes with additional expenses, such as partial travel and accommodation costs.
Considering all these factors, we have decided to raise the tuition fee for the next academic year. The new fee will be as follows:
Early Bird M2 & M3 € 4,600.00 plus €100 administration fee
Full Tuition Fee M2 & M3 € 4,850.00 plus €100 administration fee
Early Bird M1 € 4,800.00 plus €300 administration fee
Full Tuition Fee M1 € 5,050.00 plus €300 administration fee
* for early bird fee, written notice by latest 3rd of Jully is required
We want to assure you that the decision to raise the tuition fee came after careful consideration and extensive discussions with our dedicated Board members, who share our commitment to providing you with a grounded learning experience while ensuring the long-term sustainability of the NSG.
Lastly, we understand the importance of financial stability and predictability in planning your educational journey. While we would like this adjustment to be the last for the foreseeable future, it is important to acknowledge that we cannot control market conditions and inflationary pressures. Nevertheless, we are fully committed to keeping you informed and maintaining transparency throughout any future fee adjustments.
Although we understand that any increase in fees can pose challenges, we firmly believe that the quality of education and the value you receive from being part of the NSG community far outweighs this adjustment. We are confident that the knowledge and skills you acquire during your time with us will have a lasting positive impact on your personal and professional development.
We sincerely appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this time of change. Your dedication and enthusiasm contribute to the vibrant learning environment we foster at the NSG, and we are committed to ensuring your continued growth and success.
Thank you for being an integral part of the NSG community. We value your trust and remain steadfast in our commitment to delivering an enriching and transformative educational experience.
On behalf of the Board of the NSG,
