If you are studying on a teaching or health and social work programme, you may be eligible for a bursary. Bursary awards and criteria can change each academic year and are subject to availability as confirmed by DfE and DHSC.

Teaching bursaries

Qualifying for a teaching bursary from the Department for Education (DfE) is straightforward.

The faculty will assess the eligibility of students on FE ITE courses and apply on their behalf.

During enrolment, notification will be issued to student’s university email accounts, to confirm bursary entitlement and scheduled payment dates.

Qualifying students will be asked to provide their nominated bank account details, their National Insurance Number and agree to Terms and Conditions defined by the DfE and the university.

Health and social work bursaries

To be eligible for an NHS social work bursary,  you need to meet the specific criteria outlined on the social work bursaries page of the NHSBSA website. This bursary is non-repayable and contributes to your living expenses during your period of study.

The University is awarded a limited number of bursaries for undergraduate and postgraduate study and is required to nominate students in advance of the academic year following set criteria which can be found here (Social Work Bursaries – Edge Hill University). Not all students will be entitled to a capped place but may still put an application in for a travel grant.

Please note, if you are nominated for a postgraduate Social Work Bursary, you will not be eligible to receive a Postgraduate Loan and will also not qualify for alumni fee remission.

Students who are not nominated (or who wouldn’t qualify) for a Social Work Bursary, may make an application to Student Finance for a postgraduate Masters loan.

Support is available through the NHS Learning Support Fund for health programmes leading to specific awards. You can find more details on all financial support available on the student services pages of the NHSBSA website.

Due to the upcoming Parliamentary Election, information relating to Social Work Bursaries for 2024/25 will be announced as soon as possible post the election on 4 July 2024.
