If you are working within a medical environment it may be possible for you to sit it within the workplace, if facilities allow. We do have access to an exam centre in Dublin, however, there are additional fees for this.

The remaining seven instalments must be paid by standing order over seven consecutive months. Course material will be released on receipt of the first payment. If you wish to pay by instalment, bank transfer or cheque please email for an enrolment form.

As this course is the full level 3 diploma we always like to speak to students to ensure which route option is the best for you. Due to this, you cannot enrol on this course online. Please either email or call 0844 335 0636 to enrol.

If your fee is being paid by a Trust or similar, a purchase order guaranteeing payment must be sent to the BSMSA office at the time of enrolment. An invoice may be requested in advance.

If you already have the BSMSA Certificate in Medical Terminology or City and Guilds level 2 Certificate in Medical Terminology then £150.00 can be deducted from the course cost. If you have the City and Guilds level 3 Certificate in Medical Terminology £180.00 can be deducted from your payment. 

If you have already achieved the City & Guilds Level 2 Certificate or Diploma in Medical Administration, which includes some of the elements above there will be savings when upgrading to this qualification.
