NHS Bursary students

Students who are eligible for an NHS Bursary

NHS Bursary funding remains available to the following students only in the 2021 to 2022 academic year:

  • Students studying to become a doctor or dentist who are eligible to apply for NHS Bursary funding in the later stages of their course.
  • Continuing non-medical healthcare students who originally started their course before 1 August 2017 and who remain eligible for an NHS Bursary.

You must re-apply for your bursary for each eligible year of your course.

If you are on a nursing, midwifery or allied health professional (AHP) course you are not eligible for an NHS Bursary. Visit our NHS Learning Support Fund page for more information about additional funding support for these courses.

Returning students

If you're returning to a non-medical or dental healthcare course in 2021/22 after a period of absence, and you were previously in receipt of a NHS Bursary, you should first check with your university to see if you're still eligible for NHS Bursary funding when you return, or whether you should apply via the Student Loans Company for tuition fee and maintenance loan support instead.
