Students starting a mental health nursing course at a university in the UK can apply to have their tuition fees paid. The award is for 100 percent of the fee. It is paid by the National Health Service (NHS). Bursaries are also available in some circumstances. The eligibility rules are different though. Bursaries are also means tested so the amount awarded varies. Bursary students also have access to reduced rate student loans.
Only students from the UK can apply for a bursary. Both EU and UK students qualify for the tuition fee award. All students must be on approved full-time courses.
