NHS Bursaries

Describing the available funding for healthcare programmes is less straightforward than for other degrees, and different groups of students will be eligible for different funding. We’re aware of two useful summary articles – one from Save the Student and the other from the Complete University Guide.

Generally speaking, in addition to funding available through Student Finance England and the other Government funding bodies, healthcare students may be eligible for an NHS bursary (medical students in their later years of study).

If you are a student on an NHS course which started in September 2017 or after, you may be eligible for additional NHS support from their Learning Support Fund. Part of the support the NHS offers is the Exceptional Support Fund for students facing financial difficulty. Please note if you wish to apply for the Exceptional Support Fund, you must have applied and received a decision from the Exeter University Success for All fund first.
