Additional Funding Support for Healthcare Students

Information from NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA)
for University healthcare and paramedic students

Funding is available for all eligible students, and you will receive at least £5,000. Some will receive additional payments of up to £3,000 for those studying specialisms harder to recruit for and those who need help to cover childcare costs.

Students will still access funding from the Student Loan Company for tuition and maintenance loans, and the NHSBSA to apply for the existing Learning Support Fund. You can read the full terms on the GOV.UK website.

The NHSBSA Student Services department will be responsible for administering this funding on behalf of the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC). They are working together to set out the details for how students will access this additional support.

NHSBSA will update its website and social media channels with more information as soon as it becomes available. You can also sign up to receive NHSBSA bulletins on their website, indicating an interest in the Learning Support Fund.

NHSBSA is planning on holding some stakeholder events next year to explain the funding in more detail. More information about these will become available in the New Year, please check their website for further details.
