Submitting bursary forms

Have a look at the university's guide to NHS bursary forms  to find out which forms need submitting and in what circumstances.

If you don’t have a copy of the latest version, please email nhsbsa.HEIEnquiries@nhs.net to request one. It is important that you don’t use out of date forms.

We are not able to accept any old versions of forms.

Please make sure we have the correct contact details for your university by completing a university/college contact details form now.

Following your feedback, most of the NHS bursary forms are in Excel format, are not academic year specific and have clear guidance on what information needs to be captured.

Important: When completing the NHS bursary forms that are Excel documents, you must return them to us via email with the Excel file attached. We cannot extract the data if you send it in any other format e.g. a PDF file or pasted into the email body.

All NHS bursary forms must be returned to nhsbsa.HEIForms@nhs.net when completed.
