Once you enter your fifth year of study (or second year for graduate entry courses), you become eligible for NHS funding. This means that you will be eligible for a means-tested NHS Bursary. You are also be able to take a reduced-rate Maintenance Loan from the Student Loans Company (SLC). This remains the case even if you are intercalating. So if you intercalate in your fourth year of study with us, it will be funded by the SLC. The NHS will then fund the remainder of your MBChB. If you intercalate in your fifth year of study, your main source of funding will be the NHS.
You should create an online bursary application account using the NHS's Bursary Online Support System (BOSS) before you begin your NHS-funded year(s). All students are expected to apply for at least an award that covers the payment of their tuition fees.
Payments are normally made within 10 working days of the University confirming your re-enrolment, providing your application and supporting evidence have been submitted to the NHS on time. Monthly payments are made on the third Friday of every month, apart from new NHS-funded students who may receive a double payment in the first month, then standard payments from the third month onwards.
