Can a trainee go Out of Programme during their award?

Modified on Tue, 07 Mar 2023 at 10:08 AM

No, you cannot go out-of-programme from the NIHR academic post as going on any other type of OOP apart from for statutory reasons ends an academic award. Exceptional consideration may be given to those going on OOPC but will need to be approved by NIHR, it is the HEE academic team who will contact NIHR. Approval on exceptional circumstances is not guaranteed. This applies to both NIHR funded and locally funded awards.
