The Welsh government has announced that NHS bursaries will be available for students joining health related university courses in September 2017, as it continues to invest in the education and training of future NHS staff. The bursaries will cover tuition fees and provide a maintenance grant to help with the cost of living during the course.
To be eligible for the bursary, students must commit to working in Wales for at least two years after they have achieved their qualification. Vaughan Gething, the Welsh Cabinet Secretary for Health, Well-being and Sport also indicated that a new support package is being developed for admissions after 2017/18.
