In the UK

Arriving in the UK you will need copies of your HCRI offer letter and your LOI, and a record of the length of your stay in the UK.


You will need money for the journey to your Manchester accommodation. To estimate the cost of this journey, please search for your journey cost online here. The 'origin station' is your airport, and 'destination station' is either 'Manchester Piccadilly' or 'Manchester Oxford Road'.


All LEAP Students will be staying at private accommodation in Manchester which will be confirmed prior to their arrival in the UK. Please be aware, as we are using private students halls, we cannot confirm the address of the accommodation until the provider knows the exact status of their accommodation a week or two into term time.

Please contact the MSF UK LEAP team at for more information.

The cost of accommodation is around £180/ €200 per person per week. If you do not have OC funding, or a LEAP Scholarship, then you will be invoiced for this cost by MSF UK.

For the Winter 2020 semester, all students will be staying at private accommodation in Liverpool. Further information on this will be shared closer to the date.

Per Diems

The standard UK per diem is £20 per day, but this could change depending on your OC.

Therefore, if you are in the UK for 2 weeks of face to face, your per diem will be £280. Please consult with your OC to arrange your per diem before you arrive for face to face study.
