Postgraduate NHS Funding

EU students starting courses on or after 1 August 2021 must have settled or pre-settled status in the UK under the EU Settlement Scheme to get funding under the NHS Bursary Scheme. 

Any student studying an NHS course has the choice as to whether they receive funding from the NHS Wales Bursary Scheme or via Student Loans and Grants. In normal circumstances, students cannot change their funding route. Exceptional cases will be considered through an appeals mechanism.

To receive funding from the NHS Wales Bursary Scheme, students will have to commit to working in Wales for 2 years following the completion of their course (different timescales apply for courses longer or shorter than 3 years).

It is advised that all students read the NHS Wales Bursary Scheme FAQs and Terms and Conditions.

If you have further additional circumstances such as being a carer or care leaver, there may be additional support and funding available. For more information please visit our Student Plus webpage.
