Financial Support

There are three types of funding available to those pursuing Unsalaried courses.

  • Tax-free bursary or scholarship
  • Tuition Fee Loan and Maintenance Loan
  • Extra financial support (if you're a parent, have an adult dependant or a disability)

In some circumstances, trainees may be eligible to receive all three.

Those on Salaried courses are not eligible for these means of financial support.

 

Bursary or Scholarship

 

 

Applicants with a degree of 2:2 or above in any subject may be eligible to receive a bursary or scholarship.

Learn more about the bursary and scholarship offer for 2021-22.

While you must apply directly to the relevant professional body for scholarships, you do not need to apply for a bursary. Eligible trainees enrolled on a non-salaried course will begin receiving payments automatically.

Find out about eligibility and how you’ll be paid.

 

Loans

 

 

If you meet Student Finance England’s eligibility criteria, you may be able to receive a Tuition Fee and/or Maintenance Loan while you study. 

Tuition Fee Loans are available for the full cost of course fees of up to £9,250. Maintenance Loans provide up to £12,010 for living costs.

Once you accept a place on an unsalaried course, you can apply for either or both of these loans through Student Finance England.
