How much does it cost to verify my qualification?

How much will it cost?

The fees are charged in USD and you’ll need to pay the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) directly.

These fees are set by ECFMG, and you should contact your bank or check currency conversion sites for the most up to date foreign exchange rates. Please see the Fees section of ECFMG’s website for further information.

If I change my mind, or my qualification can’t be verified, can I get a refund?

Refunds aren’t available once ECFMG have started the verification process. If your awarding institution has not responded to the verification requests, you should contact them directly. Please see the Fees section of ECFMG's website for further information.

I’m a refugee – will I receive financial support?

If you have been granted refugee status in the UK, we will pay the verification fees to ECFMG on your behalf. You should ask about this when you book your PLAB part 1 test, and don't need to set up an EPIC account before this.
