Additional course fees Additional course fees

For some courses there are additional costs.  The list below is provided as a guide to additional costs that may be incurred but is not guaranteed to be exhaustive.

  • Re-assessment fees .  If students are required to undertake re-assessment a charge will be made.

  • Disclosure and Barring Service checks: students are required to pay for these as follows:

    • Counselling (PG Dip and MA)

    • Physical Education (Year 2)/Education (Year 2)

    • Medicine and Medicine electives (Year 4)

    • PGCE (Primary and Secondary)

    • Pharmacy (MPharm)

    • Social Work (BA and MA)

    • MSc Physician Associate

  • In some Schools students are required (at their own expense) to be student members of the relevant professional body.  This is required for Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy and Speech and Language Therapy students where this enables students to obtain the required professional liability insurance.  BSc Midwifery is only open to NMC registered nurses and therefore students on this course will be required to maintain registration with the NMC during the period of their course.  In other Schools students may be encouraged to become a student member of a professional body.  Where this is the case the fees are the responsibility of the student.

  • Students taking part in optional field trips and courses will normally be asked to make a contribution towards the costs of those courses which will normally be at least 50% of the cost.  Students attending theatre performances will normally be asked to pay for the cost of their ticket.

  • Students on the Paramedic Science courses are not required to obtain the C1 driving category on their driving licence during their programme of study.  However, this is highly likely to be a requirement in order to secure employment at the end of the course.

  • Students on placement will normally incur additional transport costs and may also require accommodation near their placement location.

  • BA Physical Education/PGCE Physical Education students are required to purchase UEA branded PE kit (c. £70 for the basic kit with some additional items available if required).  There are also optional opportunities to gain coaching qualifications for a small additional fee.  These are not compulsory but may enhance future employment opportunities.

  • Where equipment is provided to students for their personal use e.g. lab coats, safety spectacles then the University will normally charge for replacements if these are lost or become damaged.
