NHS bursaries will be available for those enrolling on a healthcare programme in Wales in September 2017
16 December 2016
Unlike in England, where NHS bursaries covering tuition fees are no longer available, the Welsh Government has made the announcement that those embarking on a healthcare programme in Wales will still be able to access bursaries to cover tuition fees and a maintenance grant to assist with living costs in September 2017.
Eligibility for the bursary will be based upon individuals committing in advance to take up the opportunity to work in Wales, post-qualification, for a period of two years.
Students normally domiciled in Wales and who choose NOT to make the commitment to work in Wales post qualification could, subject to eligibility conditions, apply for funding via Student Finance Wales.
If you are a student from elsewhere in the UK and you want to study a healthcare course at Cardiff University starting in September 2017 but you choose NOT to make the commitment to work in Wales post qualification you may be able to apply for alternative funding via your home UK relevant student funding service. Student funding services in each of the home UK countries will be implementing new regulations to allow for this.
Further information will be announced by the Welsh Government on the 31st March 2017, and details will be circulated to all offer-holders.
