Hi there,

You need to speak to the NHS or financial department at the university to confirm your eligibility for the NHS funding.

Thanks, Clare

Can you clarify if you are studying medicine/dentistry, or a healthcare degree (nursing, radiography, physio, etc.)? And where is your uni - England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland? The NHS funding available varies by course and uni location so the additional info would help.

You are right - year 5 (& 6) for an undergrad pre-reg course.
