Eligible students may have their fees paid for the duration of the three-year degree by the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety (DHSSPS).
In addition students applying for a pre-registration Nursing or direct entry Midwifery course in Northern Ireland may also be eligible for a Health and Social Care (HSC) bursary. The bursary is intended to assist with daily living costs incurred while you are training and is awarded for each year of the three-year course; it will normally be paid in monthly instalments.
To be eligible for a bursary, applicants must be UK or EU/EEA national. If you are being seconded to the course by an employer, have received bursary funding for a similar course in the past or will receive funding from another source, you will be unlikely to be eligible for a bursary. If you are unsure whether you meet the eligibility criteria you should contact the Bursary Administration Unit:
