NHS Bursary Scheme rules 2015
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 2 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.
The page also has a policy statement in response to the Supreme Court ruling in the case of Tigere, 29 July 2015.
Students and prospective students should not rely on the current NHS Bursary rules and allowances when planning for subsequent academic years. These rules may be subject to review in the future and as a result may change. Further information about the NHS Bursary Scheme will be posted on the NHS Business Services Authority website. Students are advised to check the website on a regular basis. The Department of Health and NHS Student Services will not accept responsibility for loss of any type suffered by students who have relied on current rules and allowances whether for the current academic year, academic year to begin or indeed for subsequent academic years.
