There are bursaries available to postgraduate students studying for qualifications in social work and teaching.
Social Work MSc
Universities in England have not yet been advised about NHS Social Work bursary allocations for the 2018-19 academic year. In 2016 and 2017, all students on this course who met the eligibility criteria (for example, residence) were nominated for and received a bursary. We will update this web page and advise our offer holders as soon as we receive further information from the Department for Health 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.
For more information, the NHS Business Service Authority administers social work bursaries.
Government funding is available to graduates training in a range of PGCE subjects from the Department for Education (DfE). Eligible students can apply for a bursary or may be awarded a DfE scholarship.
