HFMA Qualifications

How do HFMA Qualifications work?

The HFMA qualifications programme has been newly reformatted, providing a streamlined route to achieving HFMA diploma qualifications, with the option to progress onto an executive MBA with the University of Northampton. The HFMA programme now brings together learners working across the system in both secondary and primary care, to reflect the move to system working in England.

Our qualifications are highly relevant for those working in finance, clinical or medical leadership, general management and primary care management. By choosing to study an HFMA qualification, you will gain access to a completely unique programme of study and expert tutors from within the healthcare sector.

All qualifications are delivered online with regular live evening sessions from tutors, providing a flexible approach to studying alongside your work commitments. The HFMA qualifications programme provides a full route to an executive MBA, for learners who wish to complete the final MBA stage with the University of Northampton.

What are my study options?

Choose whether to enrol on a certificate (one module) or full diploma (two modules). There are two intakes per year in March and October. If you are studying a diploma you can study a module in each intake and complete your diploma within 12 months.

Bitesize route

For those who cannot commit to a structured course, we have created a bitesize option. Complete all the courses in a series in your own time, purchase the study skills and assessment package to achieve a qualification if successfully completed. HFMA bitesize does not offer tutor support or weekly live sessions.

The HFMA intermediate qualifications are only available via the bitesize route.
