Hi, I have been looking into the bursary for Health Professional Courses here in Northern Ireland. I'm a little confused as there is lots of information available for students in England who can receive an NHS bursary and even a calculator to estimate what support they receive. However here in the north we need to apply through the DHSSPS and more specifically through student finance ni. When I apply through SFNI there is a section that asks me about other support available and if i'm entitled to a NHS bursary and if its means tested. Other than that there is no mention of the bursary. My question is if there is anywhere I can get an estimate of the amount of financial support I'll receive through the DHSSPS and how do I go about applying for the bursary? Will the college or SFNI send out an application form automatically?
Thanks for taking the time to read this and any insight would be appreciated. I have an offer for Occupational Therapy if that makes any difference.
But going to get a U!
