Changes for NHS funded students from 2017-18

Please note from 1 August 2017 there will be a new funding system for new students, with the system moving from NHS grants to student loans. New students will have access to the standard student support system provided by the Student Loans Company (SLC) to cover the cost of their tuition fees and means tested support for living costs, rather than having their course fees paid by Health Education England (HEE) and receiving a bursary from the NHS Business Services Authority (BSA). 

Further information on the changes can be found here.


U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs

If you are an American citizen or a dependent and plan on receiving funding from the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA), please email with your name, contact details and course of study, so we can ensure your course is registered with the VA.
