Funding your healthcare course

There are two routes of funding for healthcare students: NHS funding for those committed to working in Wales after qualifying, or Student Finance funding.

The Welsh Government has confirmed that the NHS Bursary will continue to be available for new students starting between September 2023 and March 2024.

Return to Practice part-time blended learning course

The funding for this short course is different to other healthcare courses and dependent on where you live prior to the start of the course.

Funding information for home students who usually live in Wales

For applicants who usually live in Wales, and who qualify for UK fee funding under this criteria, the tuition fees for this course are usually paid for by NHS Wales. There is no commitment to work in Wales for the NHS following this course.

In addition, there is a non-repayable NHS bursary of £1,000 available to help towards living costs. Students with young children may also qualify for support through a means-tested NHS Childcare Grant.

The funding for this course is arranged through the School of Healthcare Sciences Finance office. For further enquiries about this Return to Practice course please email

Funding information for students not normally resident in Wales including those resident elsewhere in the UK, from the EU, EEA, Switzerland and all international (overseas) students.

If you are not ordinarily resident in Wales and/or have an overseas fee status, you are not able to apply for this course.
