NHS Bursary Scheme rules

Information about the NHS Bursary Scheme for universities and students considering work in the NHS.


These documents set out the rules and administrative arrangements for the payment of NHS bursaries to students who are considering work in the NHS and have accepted a place on an eligible course. The NHS Bursary Scheme rules ensure the bursaries are paid fairly and consistently.

There are two sets of rules, one for students who started their course before 1 September 2012 and one for those who started on or after that date. These editions replace previous editions.
