Eligibility Criteria for Tuition Fee Discounts

LSTM offers discounts on fees to NHS staff, to students who are based or have studied in the North of England, for the Diploma in Tropical Medicine & Hygiene, and to our alumni.

NHS Discount

LSTM are pleased to offer NHS staff a 15% fee discount on Short Courses.

One exclusion applies – the discount is not applicable to the 3-day course on ‘Life Saving Skills & Emergency Obstetric Care’ (due to the practical nature of the course and the limited number of students allowed per cohort).

Frequently asked questions

What does wholly self-funding mean?
You are self-funding if you are paying all of your tuition fees yourself. This includes support from a friend or relative or in receipt of a career development loan or Postgraduate Loan from the Student Loans Company.

What does partially self-funding mean?
This means you are in receipt of partial funding towards your studies. This funding can include:

1. Funding from your employer
2. Partial Fees paid for by a third party where you have applied for funding (Company, NGO, Charity, External Scholarships, etc…)

How does this work? Please see examples below:

Alumnus A wishes to study a MSc where the normal fee is £19,250 (overseas). Alumnus A is successful in winning a Merit Scholarship (£10,000 fee discount). The net fee is therefore £9,250. The 20% Alumni discount is then applied to the self-funding component. (20% of £9,250 = £1,850). Alumnus A is self-funding and is required to pay £7,400.

Alumnus B wishes to study a MSc where the normal fee is £8,900 (Home/EU). Alumnus B is given an Alumni Loyalty Tuition Fee Discount of 20% = £1,780. The net fee is therefore £7,120.

Alumnus C wishes to study a MSc where the normal fee is £19,850 (overseas). Alumnus C has partial funding from an external charity of £10,000 towards the tuition fee. The net fee is therefore £9,850. The 20% discount is then applied (20% of £9,850 = £1,940). Alumnus C is self-funding the remainder and is required to pay £7,880.

Alumnus D wishes to study a MSc where the normal fee is £19,850 (overseas). Alumnus D has full scholarship funding from an external organisation covering full fees. No discount applies for fully sponsored students.
