    *Please note that our site is currently being updated, please bear with us whilst we complete this.  Thank you.


    The Student Award Services is responsible for implementing the NHS Wales Bursary Schemes, which provides funding for healthcare students on NHS funded courses in Wales and Welsh domiciled medical and dental students within the UK.


    New students

    If you are planning to study a nursing / midwifery / allied health professional (AHP) course, you will be required to commit to working in Wales for a period of time after completing your studies.

    For a 3 year course it is a 2 year commitment and for a 2 year course it is 18 months. Please read our terms and conditions which can be found on the Apply for a bursary page before starting your application.

    If you are planning to become a doctor or dentist, you are not required to commit to these terms and conditions.

    Please follow the process below to start your Student Journey from bursary through to employment.
