Glasgow MJDF study group

Payment Options

You can pay for the MJDF exams and tuition in a variety of ways. Tuition fees include free attendance at the Glasgow Study Day conference on Friday 7 December 2018. Study evenings, the mock exam and the Study Day qualify for up to 31 hours of verifiable Enhanced CPD/CPDA.

Option 1: Pay for your exams and tuition together in monthly instalments. Beginning in June 2018 we’ll take monthly payments of £81* over two years to cover everything. We’ll sign you up and pay for your MJDF part 1 exam and then Part 2 in 2019. If for any reason you need to delay Part 2 then you can come back and sit it any time in the next five years. *This rate based on the discount rate for Part 2.

Option 2: Pay for your exams and tuition separately. In June 2018 you can sign up for the tuition group and pay for MJDF Part 1 (£522). Then at the first study evening in August you can pay for your yearly tuition fee (£750). Once you have passed Part 1 you can then pay the Part 2 exam fee (£660*) in January 2019. *Candidates taking both part 1 and 2 receive a 10% discount on part 2 which makes this £594.

Option 3: Pay for your exams and tuition separately but split your lump sum payments further. In June 2018 sign up for the tuition group and pay for MJDF Part 1 (£522). Then at the first study evening in August you can pay for your Part 1 tuition fee (£375). Once you have passed Part 1 you can then pay for your Part 2 tuition fee (£375) in November and exam fee (£660*) in January 2019. *Candidates taking both part 1 and 2 receive a 10% discount on part 2 which makes this £594.


How does the MJDF compare to the MFDS? 

Both qualifications will help you continue learning and progressing in your career. The benefits of the MJDF are that it is aimed at GDPs but on completion you can simply add the MFDS for a small fee and have both qualifications. The MJDF group ethos is one of sociability and practicality. Many of our members join the group with their friends while the rest often become friends!

Returning to the MJDF for Part 2?

This course and the mock day are now fully booked for 2017-18.

If you have already passed Part 1 of the MJDF (or the MFDS as it is possible to convert) and have taken a break from studying you can join us for the Part 2 mock exam day on Saturday 2 March 2019 in GlasgowEmail Andrew Miller at events@fgdp-scotland.org to find out more.
