Additional costs

The fees for your course cover costs required to complete set projects and course requirements. However, costs incurred through elective projects additional to course requirements will be your responsibility and will not impact your final course mark.

New students will be provided with information on course requirements on our Getting Ready website and current students will receive information via StudySpace.

Professional registration

If you belong to a registered professional body please provide details at interview, for all subjects. There are costs involved for professional registration and membership, but this is not covered by the University.

Disclosure and Barring Service checks (DBS) (enhanced police check)

Some courses will involve a high level of unsupervised contact with children or vulnerable adults and you will need to complete a Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly Criminal Records Bureau) check as part of the admissions process. If you have received an offer from the University, we will bear the processing cost of your DBS application; there is an optional update service which the faculty recommends that students subscribe to at their own cost for their further professional development (currently £13).

Work experience

Costs are not reimbursed for work experience taken before enrolment.

Textbooks and learning materials

All required reading materials and resources will be provided or made accessible online at no extra cost to you.

Placements and travel expenses

A significant part of your course will be spent in practical learning environments. Although the exact duration and structure of these placements will vary, they will usually form a key part of the successful completion of your course and the foundation of your future career. We have long-established links with excellent placement providers and will always endeavour to find the right location to suit your individual needs.

Nursing and midwifery

The Government has made significant changes to funding arrangements for healthcare courses but, at present, they have agreed with industry recommendations that reasonable additional travel costs (and accommodation costs, in certain circumstances) should be met or refunded.

Professional uniform and clothing

Nursing and midwifery students are provided with a professional uniform for clinical practice, but you will have to provide suitable footwear.
