Application deadlines

Information on application deadlines for all NHS Bursary students.

In all categories below please be aware of the following:

  • If you meet your application window deadline you will have your application assessed and your first NHS Bursary payment released to your bank account within 10 working days after we receive and process the notification from your university that you have enrolled on your course and attended your first day.
  • 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 do miss your application window deadline or you are a student who goes through the clearing process, we will assess your application as quickly as possible (within 35 working days) but there may be a delay to your payments. We must receive all your application and supporting evidence, before the nine month deadline.

Continuing students

It’s important that you apply for your NHS bursary within the right application window so your payments are set up ready for the start of your academic year. 

In all cases, we must receive your bursary application, including all your supporting information, within nine months of the first date of your academic year.
