Unfortunately the only funding available for the Physician associate courses is the £10,000 postgraduate loan which can only be taken out once. My university only charged £500 a year tuition fees when they began but I think that was just to attract interest to the new course. Its now £9000 a year I believe.

The NHS bursary is not available to study on any of the physician associate courses in the UK. However, efforts are being made to address this.

Alternatively you apply for a career development loan from high street banks. You can borrow between £300 and £10,000 which you pay back once you have stopped studying, although these obviously carry different risks.

The NHS pays for my PA course but this is the last year of funding (I heard from hearsay). Manchester, Liverpool, and UCLAN may fund their students not sure contact the unis involved.

From what I understand, universities up north will pay their trainees a salary up to 1500 per month while they are clinical placements however there's a catch. They expect their trainees to work in the north 2 years after finishing their training.

Is worth checking with each university but I can tell you for sure that Manchester/Liverpool/Uclan are funding students atm. My uni (Plymouth) also funds all students so far, and we all have a contract with hospitals after graduation. However it might be that in the future not all students are funded so is a good idea to apply now

I just checked Manchester- I'm pretty sure I read £9,000 in fees?

It is possible that they are not sponsoring the next cohort in this case
