NHS Bursary

Mar 2019

I am a medical student and will be entering my fifth year of study this summer. I am slightly confused about the help with funding for the fifth and sixth years. Previously, I have got a maintenance loan and a tuition fee loan via Student Finance England. What happens in the next two years? I am confused about the difference between Student Finance England and the NHS Bursary. Should I be applying to both?

MEDICINE NHS BURSARY STUDENT FINANCE
Answer

The NHS Bursary replaces the SFE student loan for the final clinical years of your medical degree. I think the medical school staff should be able to help and guide you on this – go to the school office and ask for their help. Read our information and advice on medical course funding.
