We've received confirmation from the Department of Health and Social Care that all NHS Bursary payments will continue to be paid as normal during the period of school and university closures. Eligible students should continue to apply for payments as normal.

Bursary Fraud

We and the Department of Health and Social Care take bursary fraud very seriously. Although the vast majority of applications we receive are genuine, occasionally fraudulent claims are made.

We are determined to catch these people and take every step possible to protect public funds. Report bursary fraud
