HEE will support one exam preparation course for each component part of any given exam sitting. (for instance if the exam consists of separate written and viva/OSCE then HEE will fund an course towards the written and one towards the OSCE/viva). Applications for more than one course per component of any given exam sitting must be justified to be of educational benefit and any additional courses will be subject to discretionary approval by the Training Programme Director and the Head of School.
If you are unsuccessful in any part of an exam and you wish to repeat a similar course for a subsequent sitting of the exam then you should apply for discretionary funding for subsequent courses. This is to ensure that you are receiving the correct support from your TPD and your Head of School confirming available budgets.
Support for travel, accommodation and subsistence to attend examinations can also be claimed from the study leave budget. However, the study leave budget cannot be used to fund examination costs.
