Travel and Dual Accommodation Expenses

Travel and Dual Accommodation Expenses (TDAE) provides reimbursement of excess travel or accommodation costs incurred due to undertaking practical training on a clinical placement.

How to submit a TDAE claim

You must first make an application, and be accepted for, the £5,000 Training Grant in order to be able to claim any of the other NHS LSF allowances, including TDAE. 

Once you have done this, you can download a TDAE claim form from your NHS LSF account at any time during the academic year. Completed claims should be handed or sent to your university as soon as possible, along with any relevant invoices or receipts. Your university will be able to advise you on how and when to do this.

We aim to process all eligible TDAE claims within 20 working days of receipt.

You have a maximum of 6 months from the last date of the placement period you’re claiming for to submit your claim.
