NHS and PGCE Funding

NHS funding

Are you studying medicine or dentistry?

You will be eligible to apply for funding from the NHS instead of the standard student finance package. The main NHS funding package usually consists of:

  • full fee payment by the NHS
  • an income assessed NHS bursary, which is non-repayable and helps you to cover your living costs
  • a non-income assessed £1,000 Living Costs Grant from the NHS

If you are eligible for NHS funding, you will only be able to apply for a reduced rate, non-income assessed student loan from the Student Loans Company.

The NHS Bursary Scheme only provide bursaries for students who are ordinarily resident in England on the first day of the course, and who have been ordinarily resident in the UK for three years prior to the start of the course. If you are from Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland, you should apply to your own assessment authority.
