In the UK

NB: Please note, due to the current pandemic all face-to-face classes in the Autumn 2020 semester are being delivered online. Therefore, no students will be travelling to the UK for this semester. A decision on whether students will be able to travel for the Winter 2021 semester will be made in due course. In the meantime, you can read the information below from last semester for insight into the usual procedure for students travelling to 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 Liverpool 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 'Liverpool Lime Street'.


For the Winter 2020 semester, all students will be staying at private accommodation in Liverpool. For the 2020 calendar year, accommodation fees for all LEAP students will be covered by the MSF UK LEAP team. Further information on the accommodation arrangements will be shared closer to the date.

Per Diems

The per diem rate is currently being revised for the March face to face period. Further information will be communicated to all students closer to the date.

Please remember to consult with your OC to arrange your per diem before you arrive for face to face study.
