Student Services

We are responsible for the awards and bursary payments to eligible continuing students who are studying on healthcare or social work courses. We administer the bursaries on behalf of the Department of Health. Following the Healthcare Education Funding Reforms, we now provide the new Learning Support Fund to eligible new students starting their courses on or after 1 August 2017.

We also administer the Education Support Grant which provides funding for social work practice placements.
