Social Work Bursary

If you are joining on our MA Social Work course, you may be eligible for a Social Work Bursary. This includes an annual placement allowance.

Find further details on the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) website.

Please note, PGDip Social Work students are not eligible for the NHSBSA Social Work Bursary. If offered a place on this course, you may be eligible for the Step Up to Social Work bursary.

Residency conditions and additional eligibility criteria apply for the NHSBSA Social Work Bursary. Whilst all eligible students can expect to receive the placement allowance, the University is only allocated a capped number of Social Work Bursary awards and is required to nominate students to receive the bursary following stipulated guidance. Receipt of a Social Work Bursary is therefore not guaranteed and there is no right of appeal. You can find more information on availability and eligibility criteria online.


A range of scholarships are available to current students. You may be eligible for consideration, once you enrol on a postgraduate programme, and begin studying with us.

The majority of these scholarships are only available to students enrolled on full-time courses. Your course must be longer than one year in length, which excludes many postgraduate courses.

You can also take advantage of career enhancing opportunities by applying for financial support from our Student Opportunity Fund. This fund is available to support both eligible full-time and part-time students.

Find more information on the full range of scholarships, including eligibility criteria for each award.

You will not have access to a grant that contributes towards your living costs. However, if you have a disability or specific learning difficulty, you may be eligible for support to meet your individual needs. Find out more through the Government’s Disabled Students’ Allowance.

Disabled Students’ Allowances are worth up to £26,948 for eligible students in academic year 2024/25. These allowances help with the cost of specialist equipment, extra travel costs, or other support necessary to enable your studies.

If you feel you have a support requirement, we encourage you to arrange a chat with our Inclusive Services team.
