This money matters guide outlines tuition fee arrangements for UK students joining the MBChB Medicine and MBChB Medicine with Foundation Year programmes. This guide is for those joining these programmes at Edge Hill University between August 2024 and July 2025.

On this page you can find out what student funding you may qualify for and how to apply for it. We encourage you to explore all potential sources of additional funding to maximise payment support.

Exceptions may apply if you have enrolled on previous higher education study (at level 4 or level 5). This applies if you didn’t achieve a qualification, or if the course you are joining is of an equivalent or lower level to a previous qualification.

Travel expenses for medicine courses 

In the case of you studying on a medicine course, you may have to attend clinical placements. Student finance regulations treat placements as university study and assess this as full attendance with eligibility for full fees. Moreover, you will be eligible to apply for a travel grant. 

Student Finance will issue the claim travel expenses for clinical study (CLEX) form to them If the application is means-tested. This does not apply to NHS Bursary years.
