From 2017 the government will cease to provide bursaries for undergraduate NHS courses. Students will have access to the standard student support package of tuition fee loans and support for living costs, rather than getting an NHS grant.
How we can support you
If you enrol onto an undergraduate NHS programme in 2017, we’ll cover the costs of your:
- DBS check**
- Occupational Health check
This is in addition to any government support agreed. Government funding for travel to placements is available - see eligibility here.
