In general, undergraduates will get their funding from their fifth year. However, some students choose to take an intercalation year or need to repeat, so your start year may be calculated a bit differently. Some information is below and you can find a helpful table on page 10 of the NHS guidance.
Intercalation years are counted as a year of study, so if you did an intercalation year before Year 5 of your degree, then you will start getting your funding in Year 4 (which is your fifth year since starting).
If you intercalate in Year 5 or later you will be eligible for bursary funding during that year.
If you repeat a year before Year 5 you will not get funding until you start Year 5.
If you need to repeat a year that's been funded by the bursary, you can get an extra year of funding. The University will send an extension request to NHS Bursary to arrange the extra funding.
Postgraduates will receive their funding from their second year.
*Note: a graduate-entry course that's been classed as undergraduate will still be considered a postgraduate course for the purpose of bursary funding.*
