The tuition fee award is not subject to an income assessment.

If you are studying on a course other than medicine or dentistry and you are still supported by the NHS Bursary rather than mainstream student loans, your tuition fees are a matter for Health Education England. The NHSBSA has no involvement with fee payments for non-medical or dental students.

If you are deemed eligible and studying an NHS funded year of a Medical or Dental course, it will depend on the type of course you are studying as to how much we will contribute. The current rates are below.

We would pay up to £9,250 for pre-registration (undergraduate) courses lasting 5 or more years (including any integral foundation or intercalating years at bachelor or masters degree level) and up to £3,715 (£3,925 in Northern Ireland) for shortened / accelerated pre-registration (graduate-entry) courses.

If you are in your final year and attendance is 15 weeks or less, we will pay fees up to £4,625.

We will pay up to £4,625 for any eligible academic year of an international course where the periods of study at the UK university are no more than 10 full time weeks or 30 part time weeks (excluding holidays).

Where a university has chosen to charge a higher tuition fee contribution than those shown above, you will be expected to meet any balance in excess of this amount yourself.
