Our scholarships and bursaries

Intercalated Student Bursaries

We are pleased to offer two Intercalated Student Bursaries to Medicine students from other UK medical schools who intercalate with us in 2022 on selected programmes.

In order to be eligible, applicants must fulfil the Medical School’s HYMS Bursary award criteria and not already be in receipt of additional funding or support to undertake an intercalated degree. The bursary is worth £2400 and will be offered as a cash award.

Hull York Medical School Intercalated Student Bursaries

We are pleased to offer six Intercalated Student Bursaries to Hull York Medical School MB BS Medicine students to undertake an intercalated degree at the School in 2022 on selected programmes.

In order to be eligible, applicants must fulfil the Medical School’s widening participation criteria and not be in receipt of any additional funding or support (with the exception of the Hull York Medical School Bursary).

The bursary is worth 50% of the tuition fee for the intercalated programme for 2022 entry, and will be offered as a cash award.

Postgraduate Taught Widening Access Scholarship

We are pleased to offer one Postgraduate Taught Widening Access Scholarship per programme for 2022 entry to a UK applicant who meets our eligibility criteria, for the following programmes:

The value of the award is £1000, offered as a fee reduction.

Loans

Student loans and finance

Students wishing to intercalate are also able to apply for financial support via the appropriate undergraduate or postgraduate finance body, depending on your programme of choice.

For students wishing to pursue a Masters level programme, you will need to complete at least three years of your medical programme (if your first degree) to undertake a postgraduate level intercalation. You should be mindful that completing a postgraduate intercalation can make you ineligible for further funding from undergraduate loans funders as you will hold a higher level qualification.

Visit the British Medical Association website for information about student finance for Medical students.

NHS

NHS Bursary considerations

Intercalation can contribute to your eligibility for the NHS Bursary. Students become eligible for the NHS Bursary after the completion of four years of study. Intercalating for a Bachelors or Masters level intercalated degree also contributes to eligibility for the NHS Bursary. This typically means that students become eligible for NHS Bursary support from your fifth year of study (ie. year 4 of your MBBS). The NHS Bursary may also be used to support an intercalated degree if you have completed 4 years of a medical programme.

The application process typically opens early March and applications are made directly to the NHS Business Services Authority via their application portal.

The deadline for applying for the bursary is typically in the May of the preceding academic year. Submissions after the deadline may result in a delay of any funding.

For more information about the bursary, application deadlines and how to apply, please visit the NHS Business Authority website.
