My payment was unsuccessful – what options are available to me?

In the first instance candidates should contact their bank – there may be insufficient funds available or a security check that the bank needs to perform before funds can be released.  Once this enquiry has been made candidates should contact their administrative office/college of entry to reattempt payment over the telephone.

Payment can be made via any of the following methods:

  • Credit/debit card (does not have be the card holder, but must have authorisation to use the card) by telephone
  • Bank draft*
  • Cheque*
  • Cash payment
  • Via MRCP(UK) online account

* Bank drafts and cheques must be drawn on a UK bank and made payable to ‘The Royal College of Physicians.’

Please note that in order to comply with UK law we cannot accept credit/debit card details sent in emails/via the contact form on this website, either in the body text or as attachments.  If you do send card details in this manner it is entirely at your own risk.  Card details received in emails or as attachments will be immediately deleted and payments will not be actioned.  Card payment can only be made online via the application system or by telephone.
