Trainees are based, wherever possible, for a majority of their clinical placements within an area in commuting distance of the University. It is strongly recommended that trainees take up residence in the South Yorkshire area. Candidates must be prepared to move between any of the Trusts in the Region and occasionally to adjoining Regions for some placements.

You must be eligible for home fees status in order to apply for an NHS funded place on the Programme. Candidates for 2023 entry should check the UKCISA website in light of possible alterations to fee status: UKCISA Brexit - Impact on fees status assessments. If your status is not clear then you may be asked for additional information by the University admissions team prior to your application being reviewed by our short-listing team.

Current NHS funded trainees are full-time employees of the health service and have annual leave and other benefits in line with usual NHS entitlements. On entry to the programme all trainees are paid on the first spine point of Band 6 of the Agenda for Change pay scales. Travelling expenses are paid for travel to placement (over and above the distance of the trainees home to the programme base. We do not pay travel from home to work. Please consider the financial costs of this for yourself if you are intending to live at a distance from the course base), and University fees are paid directly by the NHS. Placement accommodation costs are not available.
