NMW does not apply where students are undertaking work experience as part of a higher education course, provided that , as part of that course, they are required to attend a period of work experience which does not exceed one year.

Certain Government and European schemes and programs are also exempt from NMW. There are many other exemptions.

• refuse or willfully neglect to pay workers a rate at least equal to the NMW
