As a student on this course, you should factor some additional costs into your budget, alongside your tuition fees and living expenses.
You should be able to access most of the books you’ll need through our libraries, though you may wish to purchase your own copies.
You will need to purchase a PENG Handbook (£30) and tunics for placement, and there is a fee for your enhanced DBS clearance.
You will need to purchase a cooking apron for practical sessions.
Due to our commitment to sustainability, we don’t print lecture notes but these are available digitally. You will be given £5 worth of printer credits a year. You are welcome to buy more credits if you need them. It costs 4p to print one black and white page.
Practice education placements are a compulsory part of this degree and one of these is across the summer vacation between the third and fourth year. This means that undertaking paid work during that summer is unlikely to be possible.
There could be extra costs if you need to pay for additional accommodation near to your placement whilst continuing to pay for your usual university accommodation.
Students will get different levels of support via the NHS Learning Support Fund (LSF) depending on their personal circumstances. Students must be eligible for both tuition fee and maintenance loan support from the Student Loans Company to be able to apply for any of the NHS LSF allowances. Some of the additional costs of attending a practice placement such as travel and dual accommodation costs may be reimbursed, provided a valid claim is made within nine months of those costs being incurred. Further information regarding eligibility can be accessed online.
There may be options to undertake an optional international summer school in Malaysia and this would be self-funded.
