    Fees

    Our postgraduate programmes in Medical Education are designed for professionals working in healthcare settings who are involved in clinical education. Therefore, they are offered on a part-time basis only. Due to visa restrictions we can only consider applications from Overseas applicants who have the correct visa arrangements in place to enable part-time study (e.g., Tier 2).

    The programmes offer a flexible pathway through study, with a tiered exit structure allowing students to exit with a PG Certificate, PG Diploma, or MSc over three years. Following successful completion of the PG Certificate (year 1), students have the opportunity to progress to the PG Diploma (year 2) and MSc (year 3).

    The PG Certificate is 60 credits. The 2019/20 Home/EU fees for the PG Cert is £2,833.

    The 2019/20 Overseas fees for the PG Certificate is £6,833. Overseas applicants should check their visa conditions to ensure eligibility for part-time study.

    Following completion of the PG Certificate, there is opportunity to progress to the PG Diploma and then to the MSc.

    The University will not increase the Tuition Fee you are charged during the course of an academic year.

    If you are studying on a programme of more than one year's duration, the tuition fees for subsequent years of your programme are likely to increase each year. The way in which continuing students' fee rates are determined varies according to an individual's 'fee status' as set out on our fees webpages.

    What are tuition fees for?

    Studying at a UK University means that you need to pay an annual fee for your tuition, which covers the costs associated with teaching, examinations, assessment and graduation.

    The fee that you will be charged depends on whether you are considered to be a UK, EU or overseas student. Visiting students will be charged a pro-rata fee for periods of study less than a year.

    Our annual tuition fee is set for a 12 month session, which usually runs from October to September the following year.

    How does Lancaster set overseas tuition fees?

    Overseas fees, alongside all other sources of income, allow the University to maintain its abilities across the range of activities and services. Each year the University's Finance Committee consider recommendations for increases to fees proposed for all categories of student and this takes into account a range of factors including projected cost inflation for the University, comparisons against other high-quality institutions and external financial factors such as projected exchange rate movements.

    What support is available towards tuition fees?

    Lancaster University's priority is to support every student in making the most of their education. Many of our students each year will be entitled to bursaries or scholarships to help with the cost of fees and/or living expenses. You can find out more about financial support, studentships, and awards for postgraduate study on our website.
