Funding for Continuing Professional Development

There is NHS funding available to support the continuing professional development of healthcare professionals. We also accept sponsored and self-funding students.


Tuition fees

Current tuition fees for CPD modules in the School of Allied Health Professions, Nursing and Midwifery can be found on the following webpages:

Tuition fees for PGCert, PGDip or masters programmes are given on the relevant course webpage.

Self-funding students

If you intend to fund your own studies, you will receive instructions on how to pay your fees after you have been offered a place on one of our modules or programmes. You may be able to pay your fees in instalments.

Sponsored students

If your fees are being paid by a sponsor, you will need to send a sponsor letter on headed paper to The letter must include your full name, the name of your module or programme, its fee and details of where an invoice can be sent. 

Workforce Development Fund

NHS healthcare professionals working in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw may be able to access the NHS Workforce Development Fund to cover the costs of some CPD modules. Your employer will need to approve your application for this funding and there may be a separate application process that you will need to complete.

If you intend to pay your tuition fees using the Workforce Development Fund, please complete the fees and funding form that you will receive after you have applied for your module, and send it to at least seven weeks before the start of your studies. The form will need to be signed by a relevant manager and authorised signatory, and you will be informed whether or not your funding application has been successful.
