Please see below for the costs involved in studying for the Advanced Certificate or Diploma:

MRS Advanced Certificate

We offer two approaches to studying for The Advanced Certificate qualification:

Premium – the fully tutored route – we are here throughout your studies to offer advice and support. You can send us a draft of each section of your IA for feedback and we will look at the final draft of your IA before you submit it.

We will also help you to prepare for success in the Exam. We are available to answer any queries you have about what you have read about in the recommended text or other reading. We will ask you to complete several exercises before the Exam, together with a mock Exam, for which we will provide detailed feedback so that you know how to improve your performance for the Exam itself.

The cost of the fully tutored study route is £1,065.00 to £1,295.00 plus VAT. This is broken down as follows:

Tuition (regular tutor support and study materials) £1,015.00
MRS Registration and exam venue fee £280.00
Total excluding VAT £1,295.00
Total including VAT £1,554.00
Discounted price of £965 for tuition for companies submitting 3+ students per sitting – £1,245 + VAT = £1,494

Essentials – the tutor review route – we will comment on the final draft of your assignment once before you submit it. We will also ask you to complete the mock Exam and will give you detailed comments as to how you can improve your performance in the real Exam. (We would not recommend the Essentials route unless you are competent at designing research projects and writing research proposals. If at any stage you feel that you need to upgrade to the Premium Fully Tutored route, that’s not a problem).

Final checks of IA draft and mock Exam, and study materials £590.00
MRS Registration fee and exam venue fee £280.00
Total excluding VAT £870.00
Total including VAT £1,044.00

Please talk to us if you are unsure which approach is best for you.

If you have already passed the MRS Advanced Certificate you should not need as much support to pass the Diploma Unit One exam as students who have not taken the qualification. We are able to offer a 50% discount on the tuition fees for Unit One for successful Advanced Certificate students.
