I am preparing for my curriculum mandated exam– will the study budget cover revision courses and the exam fee?

The study budget will support one exam preparation course for each component part of any given exam sitting to help you adequately revise and prepare for the examination. You are advised to book onto the most cost-effective exam preparation course as possible – where you feel you need to book onto a more expensive course you will need to give evidence that a more cost-effective course is not available or is fully booked, or to provide a justification for booking a particular expensive course when cheaper options are available. If unsure, please speak to your ES/TPD who will be able to direct you to appropriate courses that are more cost-effective. Please remember that there is a finite budget for study leave, so we all need to use it wisely to avoid the risk of restrictions having to be imposed towards the end of the financial year.

You are also able to claim for travel & accommodation to attend the examination from the study leave budget.

Please note that the study leave budget cannot be used to fund examination costs.

Should you wish to attend multiple preparation courses for the same exam, please see our guidance here.
