Hi Hope_2021 If you wanted to study at a Welsh university, and commit to work in the Wales for 2 years following graduation, you can apply for the Welsh NHS bursary which covers course fees and a maintenance grant. More information here https://nwssp.nhs.wales/ourservices/...ards-services/ I hope this helps, thanks and diolch! Rebecca, USW Official Rep

You can apply for a regular student loan (covers tuition fees and provides a means-tested loan for living costs) as long as you're eligible. If you are a UK citizen who has lived in the UK for at least 3 years, you probably are.

As for bursaries and grants, it depends where you're from and where you want to study. If you're from Scotland and want to study in Scotland, you can apply for the Scottish NHS bursary (£10,000 per year). Similar rule applies if you're Northern Irish and want to go to a Northern Irish university. You cannot get the Scotland or NI loan if you're not from those countries and studying in your home country.

Wales is slightly different - any Welsh or English student can get it if you agree to work for NHS Wales for two years after qualifying. That covers tuition, a standard-rate maintenance grant plus a means-tested maintenance grant.

If you're studying in England, you can get a grant of at least £5,000 a year regardless of where in the UK you're from.
