There are some forms that you can’t complete in BOSS. You’ll need to print these forms out and then post them back to us.
Childcare Allowance and Reconciliation
If you have childcare costs, you can apply for Childcare Allowance. The form must be countersigned by your childcare provider or we can’t accept it.
Reconciling your childcare costs
If you've been awarded Childcare Allowance, we reconcile your childcare costs quarterly.
Please complete and send us the correct form and any evidence together with your student coversheet to:
NHS Student Bursaries,
PO Box 2253,
Practice Placement Expenses (PPE)
If you started your course before 1 August 2017 or you are in receipt of a bursary through the 2017/18 transitional arrangements, you may be able to get help with your travel and accommodation costs whilst on a practice placement. Please make sure you read our guidance notes before making a claim.
Your university is expected to provide support for identified needs through reasonable adjustments. However, if they are unable to provide the support you require and you have submitted a formal appeal to them, we may be able to offer temporary support to you through the DSAs whilst your appeal is being decided by your university.
Current Income Assessment
If your parents' or spouse/partner's income has dropped by 15% or more compared to the previous tax year your bursary may be reassessed.
Confirmation of pay
You need to complete the confirmation of pay form if you don’t have a P60 or a week 52 payslip:
Confirmation of Personal (Private) Pension Contribution
You need to complete this form if you’re paying into a personal pension plan (not a company pension scheme). Please note tax relief must be quoted.
Self assessed income
The Declaration of Self Assessment Income Form (PSM65) is no longer accepted as a valid confirmation of self-assessed income. If you need to confirm your income from self-assessment, please provide the most recent of the following documents:
• personal tax calculation/computation statement from HMRC
• self-assessment tax return
• statement of accounts
• accountant’s letter
