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.
