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


Alongside our courses, we offer a wide range of modules suitable for all those looking to improve their specialist skills.


Whether you’re new to cancer care, or want to broaden your knowledge, you can find the right module to study at The Royal Marsden School.

Most modules are only 5 days long, either taught at the school or by a combination of classroom and on-line tuition.

Choosing a module allows you to:

• fit studying in around your work and life

• up-skill in one particular area, or more

• find the best field to develop your career

• study without committing to a full degree

• ‘pick and mix’ training to suit you

• enjoy a subject on a stand-alone basis

• build in topics as part of a degree pathway

All our modules are validated by the University of East Anglia, so students who successfully complete a module will be awarded a UEA qualification.

The psycho-social course was so inspiring and enjoyable… I have come out a more passionate nurse and privileged to be part of the course
