Travel and Dual Accommodation Expenses

Travel and Dual Accommodation Expenses (TDAE) will reimburse excess costs incurred when undertaking practical training on placements.

When to submit a TDAE claim

You can submit a TDAE claim as many times as you like, we recommend allowing at least one week’s worth of claims before sending in a claim.

You have 9 months from the last date of the placement period you’re claiming for to submit your claim.
