Student Funding and Tuition Fees 2017/18  
In the November 2015 Spending Review the government announced a review of funding for new students starting NHS courses in 2017/18. It is likely that NHS funding will no longer be available for these courses and instead, students will be eligible for loans from the Student Loans Company to cover tuition fees and living costs. 
Existing students and those due to start in September 2016 or January/February 2017 will still be eligible for NHS Bursary.
Tuition fee and student loan rates for 2017/18 have not yet been confirmed.

Beckett Achievement Award 

The Beckett Achievement Award is a one-off cash award for all UK/EU undergraduate students with a household income below £25,000. It is available to students entering the University in 2017/18 achieving an average 60% or more across Level 4 with no repeat year required, and enrolling fully for Level 5 in the following academic year.
