This page contains information about our tuition fees for 2016/17, together with the bursaries and funding options that are available.
The HYMS tuition fee is £9,000 per year, and the course is five years long. During the first four years of the course students who have not already studied at degree level may receive a Tuition Fee Loan and Maintenance Loan from Student Finance England (if you’re from Wales, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Guernsey, Jersey or Isle of Man you’ll need to apply to your own funding body for your student finance, and their arrangements may differ – click on the relevant link for information about your funding). If you are from England or Wales, from your fifth year you’ll receive additional funding from the NHS.
Financial support available
Tuition Fee Loan: The Tuition Fee Loan is paid directly to the university on your behalf. It covers the cost of your tuition fees in full. You start paying this back after you have left university, and are earning over £21,000.
Maintenance Loan (UK students only): The Maintenance Loan covers, or helps towards, your living costs. The amount you receive will depend on your residual household income. Like the Tuition Fee Loan, you will start paying this back after you have left university and are earning over £21,000.
Student Finance England have a calculator to help you determine how much Maintenance Loan you are eligible to receive.
HYMS Bursary: Students with a residual household income of up to £25,000 will receive an accommodation discount of £2,400 for each year of study. If you are not in university managed accommodation this will be paid in cash.
• Students with a disability can apply for Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA) to cover any additional costs incurred because of their disability
• Students with children may be eligible for Parents' Learning Allowance and a Childcare Grant
Graduates: If you have already completed an undergraduate degree you won't be entitled to a Tuition Fee Loan, but may still be eligible for the Maintenance Loan and HYMS Bursary. Any previous study at degree level will impact the funding you can receive, even if you did not finish your degree. You will still receive NHS funding in your final year if you are eligible.
NHS Funding: If you are from England or Wales, from the fifth year of your course you will be eligible for NHS funding providing you were living in the UK, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man for at least 3 years before the start of your course. NHS funding does not have to be repaid.
