Tuition fees

The level of fee that you will be asked to pay depends on whether you're classed as a UK (home) or international student. Check your fee status on the University of York website.

Additional costs

You will need to buy a stethoscope, which typically costs around £85.

Details of accommodation options and costs for students in Years 1 and 2 are available from the University of York - accommodation and University of Hull - accommodation. For the remainder of the Medicine programme, you will be on clinical placement. Each year you will be allocated a clinical base site at either Hull or York where you will be expected to maintain accommodation.

There will be costs incurred throughout the course whilst on clinical placement which are likely to include travel, parking and/or accommodation. These costs will vary, travel contribution schemes and bursaries are available to support you. Support is available when additional accommodation is required to ensure you are not expected to bear the cost of maintaining two sets of accommodation (support can include both reimbursement and some costs covered at source).

Students are required to complete an elective at the beginning of Year 5. The elective is funded by the medical student and associated costs will vary depending on the elective you choose, and whether this is overseas or in the UK.
