Policy on additional costs

All students should normally be able to complete their programme of study without incurring additional study costs over and above the tuition fee for that programme. Any unavoidable additional compulsory costs totalling more than 1% of the annual home undergraduate fee per annum, regardless of whether the programme in question is undergraduate or postgraduate taught, will be made clear to you at the point of application. Further information can be found in the University's Policy on additional costs incurred by students on undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes (PDF document, 91KB).


Funding is available to NHS staff for CPD units.

It is possible to apply for multiple units and combine them for the award of PGCert (Genomic Medicine) or PGDip (Genomic Medicine) so long as they include Fundamentals of Human Genetics (BIOL67561) and Bioinformatics, Interpretation, Statistics and Data Quality Assurance (BIOL67981).

An MSc pathway is still possible, but will require partial funding from another source (see below).

All units eligible for HEE funding must be completed by the end of March 2020. Consequently, no courses can be taken part-time (ie extend beyond March 2020) unless funding is secured from another source.

Such a self-funding mechanism can also be used to top up the credits necessary to gain a MSc (eg HEE funding for eight taught units and payment of £4,000 to take the 60-credit project unit). Further details are available by contacting .

HEE funding details and the application process can be found at Health Education England .
