** In 2017 a consultation by the UK Government Department of Health and Social Care recommended that International medical students pay the full tuition and training costs including placement fees; this was not implemented in 2018, 2019 nor 2020. If this is implemented from 2021-22, new international students will be required to pay university tuition fees plus an annual supplement to cover the cost of clinical placements, which is likely to be approximately £20,000 per annum for the five years of the programme. This remains under review by the UK Government Department of Health and Social Care.
