Scholarships and bursaries

We are investing over £5 million in 2017–18 to provide a package of bursaries and financial support to students from England including schemes which will mean even more students can access financial support from the University.

  • Alumni scholarships

    You could qualify for a scholarship towards your postgraduate course fees if you have studied with us before.

    Our postgraduate scholarships are open to UK/EU and International graduates on most full-time and part-time courses.

  • Government changes to Department of Health funded courses

    The government proposed that from 2017/18, new students on nursing, midwifery and pre-registration courses under the allied health professions in England will no longer receive an NHS grant.

    However, it has been decided that postgraduate pre-registration students will receive an NHS bursary for the academic year 2017/18.
