Application deadlines

Information on application deadlines for all NHS Bursary students

Once your application is approved, your bursary entitlement for the forthcoming academic year will be available to view in the Payment Schedule of your BOSS account.

If you meet your application window deadline and you are eligible for a bursary, your  first payment will be made to your bank account on the third Friday of the month in which your academic year begins.

If you miss your application window deadline, we will assess your application within 35 working days from the date of receipt, but there may be a short delay to your payments.

Your BOSS application and supporting evidence must be received within nine months of the start of your academic year.  Applications received after this date will not be accepted.
