The programme consists of a total of 25 days, divided into six modules over a twelve month period. As part of the intact cohort, participants are expected to participate in all six modules. To allow for some occasional evening work, and to support the cohort’s development as an evolving, temporary system, participants are encouraged to stay overnight at or near the programme venue.

The tuition for the programme is £11,250 plus VAT. Participants are responsible for organising their own accommodation and evening meals. Discounted rates are available at the programme venue.

Payment can be made in full or in three instalments with 40% of the tuition due at time of acceptance to the programme.  The remaining two payments of 30% each will be due on 1 September 2020 and 1 January 2021 respectively. The timely payment of invoices is a condition of participation in the programme. Applicants are reminded that the programme operates on a not-for-profit basis.

Under exceptional circumstances, individuals are allowed to participate in specific modules rather than the full six-module programme. The individual module fee is £2,300 plus VAT. Full graduates of the OD Certificate Programme can return to participate in individual modules whenever they want to do so for a fee of £750 plus VAT per module.  Please contact us about availability or to be placed on the notification list.


Fees are not refundable under any circumstances.  A participant who misses a module will be able to make it up by joining the following year’s cohort for that module at no additional cost.
