Course content

The programme provides opportunities for students, including those with limited experience of dermatology, to develop and demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the full range of disease that can affect the skin. Clinical exposure is complemented by lectures, seminars and conferences by members of the faculty and invited prominent speakers.

The programme is based at the St John's Institute of Dermatology, a specialised clinical, teaching and research institute based in St Thomas' and Guy's hospitals.

Fees and funding

About half our students are self-funded. Others funded by the British Council, WHO and government scholarships. To guarantee a place, self-funded students must pay a deposit of £1,000 for home/EU students and £5,000 for overseas students. The deposit is paid after you have received the formal offer.
