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.

Health Education England (HEE) funding is initially only available for up to four units but students may apply for further funding once these four units are underway. Further funding will depend on attainment level and availability of funds, which are confirmed by HEE in April of each year. The University of Manchester's current contract with HEE runs until March 2025.

We intend to renew contracts but this is yet to be arranged so anyone studying part time from 2023 may find that funding is not available after March 2025.

Please contact if you require further details on HEE funding or to enquire about unit dates.

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