From 1 August 2019, the only new students who can apply for NHS Bursary funding are those on medical or dental courses entering the NHS Funded years of their course.

Continuing healthcare students on non-medical / dental courses that started prior to 1 August 2019 and are already in receipt of a NHS Bursary will continue to be eligible to apply for funding for the duration of their course as long as they have no interruption to their study and reapply for subsequent years within the published timescales.

If you have any change to your study pattern (such as transferring to a different university / course, withdrawing from your course and resuming, changing from full time to part time, etc.) you may still be eligible for NHS Bursary funding subject to authorisation from Health Education England (HEE). If this applies to you, you should speak to your university in the first instance. They will liaise with the appropriate HEE regional office who will make the final decision with regard to continuation of NHS Bursary and tuition fee funding on a case by case basis. Students should not assume that bursary funding will automatically continue and, where this is no longer available, are advised to apply to Student Finance England (or the equivalent UK body) for mainstream student loan support instead.
