Coronavirus (COVID-19) – In light of the evolving situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, all face-to-face teaching at The Royal Marsden School is suspended and we are not accepting any new applications. We will be reviewing the situation regularly and should it become feasible to resume activity will do so.

The safety of those attending our courses and our patients is our primary concern and we are following all current Public Health England guidelines. Read here.

The School will be communicating directly with their staff and students to outline their plans for the delivery of each of their programmes/modules. For now, please see our Student Q&A 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.
