NHS bursary students

Students who are eligible for an NHS bursary

From 2019 to 2020, the only new students who can apply for NHS bursary funding are those attending medical or dental courses. They must be in their later years of training. 

Our medical and dental students page has more information.

Continuing healthcare students will normally continue to receive NHS bursary funding if they are both:

  • already receiving a NHS bursary award
  • attending their course in 2019 / 2020

They will need to re-apply for the 2019 / 2020 academic year

Returning students

If you're returning to a healthcare course in 2019 / 2020 after a period of absence, you should check with your university to see if you're eligible to return on an NHS bursary or whether you should apply via the Student Loans Company for tuition fees and maintenance loans.
