Social Work MSc
In previous years, students on this course who met the eligibility criteria (for example, residence) were nominated for and received a bursary. We will advise our offer holders as soon as we receive further information from the Department for Health and Social Care about bursaries for the current and future years.
Should bursaries continue to be available this year, we anticipate using the prioritisation process set out within national guidance. This means that we will prioritise applicants based upon their prior educational achievement and interview performance, taking other factors into account where appropriate and particularly in the event of a tie break situation.
To apply and for further information, visit the website for NHS Social Work Bursaries.
NHS Business Services authority will update their website when details for 2021–22 become available.
