Funding and Bursary information for Nursing and Midwifery students

Eligible students may have their fees paid for the duration of the three-year degree by the Department of Health (DoH).

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 a UK or EU/EEA national. If you are being seconded to the course by an employer or are a registered nurse or midwife, have received bursary funding for nurse or midwifery training in the past, or will receive funding from another source, it may affect your eligibility for a bursary.

If you are unsure whether you meet the eligibility criteria you should contact the Bursary Administration Unit:
