Student Services Financial Support

Nursing and NHS Funded Courses

The undergraduate courses listed below are funded by the NHS. The student funding for these courses is different to undergraduate courses funded by Student Finance, one of the main differences being that the student has no, or limited, tuition fee liability. The NHS pays in most cases! 

NB: Information is for undergraduate students who normally live in England. If you normally live elsewhere, please contact the NHS (see Useful Links) for eligbility criteria.

Income assessed bursaries and non-income assessed grants are offered depending on the course, and for some courses a non-income assessed reduced rate student loan from Student Finance is also offered.

Select the relevant link for further information about the funding for each course.

From 2017/18 entry the Government has announced changes in student finance for Nursing, Midwifery and allied health care courses. NHS funding will no longer be offered. Students will be funded by the Student Loans Company in the same way as other courses with tuition fee and maintenance loans. Students who already have a degree will be able to receive funding to study on these courses. More information available here.



Further information can be found on the NHS Business Services Authority web site.

NHS funded students may also be eligible to apply to the additional support funds administered by the University.  Go to the Money Worries page for more information.
