NHS funding

The government has changed the way students studying nursing, midwifery and speech and language therapy courses are funded.

For all students attending university from September 2017 onwards NHS bursaries will no longer be available. Instead, you will have access to the standard student support package of tuition fee loans and support for living costs from Student Finance England.

For details, please visit the NHS bursary reform page and the Council of Deans of Health website.

Students studying an NHS accredited course beginning September 2017 and March 2018 will have access to the standard student support package of tuition fee loans and support for living costs.

Nursing scholarships

We can inform you of an exciting development which announces the launch of a new scholarship designed to provide financial support to students.

Up to £3,000 worth of support is available to Nursing with Registration (Mental Health or Learning Disability) students. 

For more information visit our Nursing support page.

This funding is only available to 'home' students - those who have lived in the UK for five years or more prior to the start of their course.

Degree funding for new and continuing students (starting courses after 1 September 2012 until March 2017). September 2017 starters must apply for the standard student support package of tuition fee loans and support for living costs.

DMU Support Fund 

The DMU Support Fund is aimed at UK students who have taken out all the funding and benefits that they are entitled to, but still require additional financial support. To be eligible to apply, you must be a 'home' student and have applied for/received all student funding or benefits that you are entitled to. There is no guarantee of an award but if successful, it is money that you don't pay back.
