Additional Costs

In addition to your tuition fees, you will need to consider funding for your accommodation, travel to your placements and general living costs over the next four to five years.

First year medical students who are ordinarily resident in England and Wales can apply to Student Finance Direct for financial support towards living costs. Eligible students are entitled to a Maintenance Loan (£5,740 for English Students / £5,376 for Welsh Students) 35% of this loan is means-tested and will be assessed on your parents' income unless you have been awarded independent student status.

In years two to four of study, to help with your living costs, you may also be eligible for a Department of Health non-means tested grant of £1,000 along with a means tested bursary. Where your course extends beyond 45 weeks (excluding holidays), an additional weeks allowance will be paid to eligible students for a total of 52 weeks. The Department of Health may also help with the costs of travelling to clinical placements. Students will also be eligible for a reduced rate student maintenance loan.

Students living in Northern Ireland and Scotland should contact the relevant Students Awards Agency for information on the funding available.


Students living in the EU may be eligible for help towards their tuition fee costs and should contact the European Team at the Student Loans Company. EU students are not normally entitled to the maintenance element of the NHS bursary.



Maintenance support and bursaries

Due to your previous study for an undergraduate degree, graduate entry students are not eligible for a government maintenance grant or for undergraduate bursaries or fee waivers from the University. Students with children and students with disabilities will be eligible for targeted support such as a Childcare grant, Parents’ Learning Allowance or Disabled Students’ Allowances.
