For entry in the academic year beginning September 2018, the tuition fees are as follows:
UK/EU students (per annum): £2,400 per 30 credit unit
Students starting this course and/or the PGCert in Advanced Specialist Training in Emergency Medicine in September 2018 or February 2019 who work in the north-west will have their tuition fees paid in full by Health Education North West.
This is as part of a funding initiative to develop the role of pharmacists in the emergency department. Applications from pharmacists working in emergency medicine based in acute medical areas, rather than the emergency department, may also be eligible for funding for the course. In addition, there is some additional funding available for acute trusts to backfill for students' time for undertaking either course.
Students working outside of the north-west will be self-funding and ineligible for tuition fees or backfill paid by Health Education North West.
