Check your eligibility and what you could get

We have 3 different bursary calculators available:

The calculators should only be used as a guide.

We cannot confirm how much help you’ll get until we have received your application form and supporting information.

As well as the NHS bursary, there is additional financial help you can apply for.

Help with childcare costs

If you pay for registered childcare while you attend your course, you can apply for financial help towards the cost. This is called Childcare Allowance.

The allowance is intended as an additional means of help towards childcare costs but it will not normally cover all of your costs.

Further information about this allowance is available in our guidance booklet below:

Disabled Students Allowances (DSAs)

Our guide to Disabled Students Allowances (DSAs) 2018/19 gives an overview of the different elements of the DSAs that students could be entitled to, the maximum rates and how to apply.

Practice Placement Expenses

All healthcare students are expected to attend practice placements as part of their course.

Our step by step guide to completing your PPE claim form gives you instructions on what you need to do to claim excess travel and / or accommodation expenses incurred while on a practice placement.

You can find out specific information for your course type below.
