NHS funded courses
Full-time and part-time undergraduate EU students may be eligible to apply for the NHS Bursary for support with their tuition fees only. They will not usually be eligible for an NHS Bursary or Grant towards their living costs or the reduced-rate Maintenance Loan from Student Finance England. Find out more about NHS residency criteria.
Full-time and part-time undergraduate 'Home' students who have a place on a NHS-funded course and who meet the NHS residency criteria will usually have their tuition fees paid on their behalf.
In addition, students may be eligible to apply for a non-repayable means-tested bursary, as well as a non-means-tested grant from the NHS, to help towards their living costs.
Students may also be eligible to apply for a reduced rate student loan from Student Finance England. This requires a separate application to be made directly to Student Finance England. For more information, please see NHS Bursaries overview.
Further Gov.UK financial help may also be available to eligible students who have dependants and/or disabilities such as Childcare Allowance and Disabled Students' Allowance. For further information, please see how to apply and additional allowances.
When a student has been offered a place on an NHS funded course, the university will advise NHS Student Bursaries, who will then contact the student with details of the application process for new students and how to set up a personal online account, via the Bursary Online Support System (BOSS). NHS Bursaries will then assess the students eligibility for a Bursary and will send the student a financial notification letter. This letter will include details such as the level of bursary they are entitled to and the payment details.
Part-time NHS students
Part-time undergraduate 'Home' students may be entitled to a pro-rata means-tested bursary depending upon their circumstances. Students are advised to contact NHS Student Bursaries directly for further details.
Social Work Bursary
'Home' students studying for a full-time undergraduate Social
Work course at The University of Northampton may be eligible to receive a
Social Work Bursary. This is usually paid to the student in addition to Student Finance England-assessed funding such as loans and grants.
Details for 2013/14 academic year have not yet been confirmed. For more information please contact the School of Health on 01604 893630.
