Your enrolment fee: how the money is used

We have produced this useful factsheet to explain how the enrolment fee funds all of our activities and services to support trainees during their medical training, ensure we meet our legal and operational responsibilities to the General Medical Council and to continue to develop and raise standards in physician education and training.

The IMT fee structure

The fee structure was amended in 2019 to reflect a trainee completing 3 years of training of IMT. Regardless of whether you complete 2 or 3 years of IMT training, all trainees will pay £507. All trainees will then receive a reduction when entering higher speciality training to ensure there is parity across all specialties.

At the end of the online enrolment process you will be presented with two choices:

1. Make a one-off upfront payment to JRCPTB

2. Split your training fees into instalments paid annually alongside a Collegiate Membership programme

Stage of trainingOption 1Option 2
IMT£516Initial payment of £344 to JRCPTB
  Further instalment of £172 alongside Collegiate membership

Membership subscription fees for one of the three Royal Colleges of Physicans (Edinburgh, London or Glasgow) start at about £100 and do not include the JRCPTB enrolment fee.

The first fee will always be paid directly to us. The membership department will then be responsible for collecting both their membership subscription fee and our enrolment fee for the subsequent payments on an annual basis. Our portion of the fee is subject to change and may increase over the course of your payment plan

This payment option provides cash flow advantages alongside wider membership benefits primarily related to education and training.

Claiming tax relief on enrolment fees

Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) agreed that with effect from 10 May 2013 mandatory trainee registration fees are tax deductible. Tax relief can therefore be claimed on all enrolment fees paid to JRCPTB on or after this date.  Our enrolment fees were not eligible for tax relief before 2013 so if you enrolled prior to 2013, please be advised that you may not be eligible for tax relief.

Trainees should receive confirmation of payment when they complete their enrolment online. This should be sufficient confirmation (receipt) that you have paid your training fees, or you can use the PayPal confirmation authorisation codes as a means of evidence of your payment.  The enrolment team can issue receipts upon request for the payment of enrolment fees.

Further information on how to apply for tax relief

  • Guidance on how to claim relief for fees can be found on the GOV.UK website.
  • Background information on claiming expenses where education is part of the duties of the employment can be found on the HMRC website.

JRCPTB and MRCP(UK) are unable to provide advice about your personal tax affairs. If you believe you are eligible to claim, please seek advice from your own personal tax adviser.

For information on claiming tax relief for MRCP(UK) examination trainees please see the MRCP(UK) website.
