Funded Courses

DHSSPS funded courses

The Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety (DHSSPS) in Northern Ireland provides funding for NI and EU students on a number of our courses.

Nursing funding

  • Adult Nursing
  • Mental Health Nursing

Tuition fees for Home/EU students will be met by DHSSPS (NI) (unless the student holds a current nursing qualification). In addition a non-means tested bursary is available. The DHSSPS keep the bursary under review. The bursary is intended to assist with daily living costs incurred while on training and is awarded for each year of the three-year course. It is normally paid in monthly instalments. Students who commenced in 2015/16 have received £5,165 per year. Find out more.
