NHS Bursaries for Social Work Students
The number of bursary recipients for both part-time and full-time courses are capped. As the number of students commencing social work programmes can exceed the number of bursaries available, there is no guarantee that all students will receive a bursary.
To determine which students are successful with securing a bursary, subject to meeting the NHS Bursary requirements above and entitled to a bursary, the University prioritises applicants based on a ranking during the selection interview. This ranking is based on the overall score achieved by applicants.
Students who are not allocated a bursary can apply for the postgraduate loan through Student Finance England. Students cannot apply for both the Bursary and the loan.
Postgraduate Loyalty Discount:
You can get 20% discount on a taught on-site postgraduate course if you’re a University of Wolverhampton Graduate.
The University offers a generous 20% Loyalty Discount to students progressing from an undergraduate programme to a taught postgraduate programme, where both courses are University of Wolverhampton Awards.
There is no time limit on how long ago you completed your degree as long as this is your first Masters level qualification.
The discount applies to the first year of enrolment only. Students who receive a loyalty discount are not entitled to any further tuition discount or bursary. For full terms and conditions click here.
If you are paying for the fees yourself then the fees can be paid in 3 instalments: November, January and April. More information can be found by clicking here.
Sponsored - Your employer, embassy or organisation can pay for your Tuition fees:
Your employer, embassy or organisation agrees to pay all or part of your tuition fees; the University will refer to them as your sponsor and will invoice them for the appropriate amount.
We must receive notification of sponsorship in writing as soon as possible, and before enrolment, confirming that the sponsor will pay your tuition fees.
Students can apply to the Dennis Turner Opportunity Fund for help with course related costs however this cannot be used for fees or to cover general living costs.
You might also want to explore the possibility of funding from charitable trusts; please see the following websites Association of Charitable Foundations, Directory of Social Change or Family Action. Most charities and trust funds offer limited bursaries targeted to specific groups of students so you will need to research whether any of them are relevant to your situation.
