CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)-Plans for the next academic year. 

The teaching staff are now beginning to return to the School to resume their academic activities. They are working at a pace to change the way we deliver our courses. Moving forward, we will be using blended and e-learning methods. We aim to roll out the modules, which were postponed during the initial stages of COVID-19, in a phased approach, starting in September 2020, over an eight-month period. This is in line with Health Education England (HEE) who have proposed an extension to the education contract period. This is to allow time for the recovery of commissions that were postponed due to the pandemic.

As you will recognise because of COVID-19, plans are constantly changing so we will, as the situation evolves, endeavour to keep you informed. The health and wellbeing of our staff and students are our absolute priority. 

If you do have any questions or concerns, please refer to our Student Q&A page or contact us at Student Support Services for more information.


The Royal Marsden


We offer a range of courses and qualifications – from undergraduate to master's level – as well as individual modules and study days

“Thoroughly enjoyed the course. Well balanced programme regarding physiological and psychological teaching”


Studying at The Royal Marsden School is a unique experience – our connection with The Royal Marsden means you’ll be taught by lecturers and clinicians working at the forefront of cancer health care.

Their wide range of professional backgrounds, experience and expertise means you’ll have access to the very latest information that you can immediately take into practice.

Choose from:

  • Pathways – if you want to study at under- or postgraduate level, see the courses that lead to a specialist qualification
  • Modules – improve your skills in a particular area, available on a stand-alone basis or as part of degree pathways
  • Short courses and study days – develop your practical skills, such as improving communication techniques
  • Tailor-made education – we’ll work with your organisation to provide bespoke staff-training packages

Our aim has always been to combine clinical theory and practice, but in a lively, enjoyable and relevant way for students. Smaller class sizes mean you’ll also receive greater individual support, enabling you to develop in a safe learning environment.

Many of our students are working in practice, so our flexible programme of courses can be studied at your own pace – fitting in around work and home life – building up to a qualification over a number of years.

If you are returning to education after a long break in your studies, our expert library and knowledge support staff will work with you to help improve your academic skills too.

As a leading provider of cancer education we are developing leaders who make a real difference to patient outcomes.
