We recommend that you have a reasonable degree of financial provision for the duration of the course. Financial anxiety is rarely conducive of enjoyable learning!
The fee for the first year of the next Part Time Course starting in 2013 is £2765 if paid in full before the start of the course. Payments spread over the year adds £100 administration cost to the fee - see Course Information downoad which also contains an Enquirers Form. The start date is announced - on the course dates page.
VAT is not payable on this fee because we are a non-profit making organisation.
Books and stationary - Books are the basic tools of the working Homoeopath and are an investment in your future career. A booklist will be provided on joining the course. The vast majority of the books you use on the course are the same as those on which you will rely when in practise.
External Tutorials - You will be liable for your travel expenses and tutorial fees, as negotiated with your tutor.
External sitting in hours with practitioners - Again you are liable for your travel expenses plus any fees, as negotiated with the practitioner involved, however there is often no charge for this service.
Miscellaneous - You will need access to typing and word processing facilities for your work. It is highly desirable to be able to access the student web on the net and be able to email.
Fees are reviewed annually.

Professional and Career Development Loans are commercial bank loans that can be used to help pay for work related learning. You can borrow between £300 and £10,000 to help support the cost of up to two years of learning (or three years if it includes one year’s relevant unpaid practical work). The Government will pay the interest on the loan while you are learning and for one month afterwards. You will then need to start repaying the loan as you would any other commercial loans product. The loan can be used to pay course fees or other costs such as travel and living expenses. You can also use the loan to supplement other forms of support such as grants or bursaries.
As the Professional and Career Development Loan is a commercial loan product, you should make sure you have investigated all the funding options that may be open to you to ensure you take an informed decision about whether the Loan is right for you.
