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


The Royal Marsden has been passionate about sharing its knowledge of cancer for over 150 years. It is this passion and commitment which led to the establishment of The Royal Marsden School.

The School was initially set up to provide cancer education for nurses at The Royal Marsden. Since then, the range of people coming to learn at the School has expanded to include nurses, allied health professionals, volunteers and health care support workers. These people work not only at The Royal Marsden, but in other NHS Trusts, private hospitals, primary care settings and the voluntary sector from across London, the UK and beyond.  

The School has also increased the number and type of courses that it delivers, to include non-cancer specific courses, and courses aimed at staff working in the community. These include a new BSc and Graduate Diploma in Supportive and Palliative Care, and modules and study days on topics including Advanced Communication Skills Training (ACST)
