Funding and Bursaries
Funding for 2020 Entry
We have a limited number of NHSBSA Social Work Bursaries available to eligible students.
Students who are eligible for and nominated a social work bursary from Durham University are not eligible to apply for a postgraduate loan.
Find out more on the Postgraduate Loans pages.
A tuition fee discount of 10% will be awarded to any self-funding Durham alumni who was successful in completing a qualification at Durham University at degree level or above. Further details including eligibility and FAQ can be found via the following link: https://www.dur.ac.uk/study/pg/finance/funding/bursaries/scholarships/alumni/
NHSBSA Bursary Information
Please note, the number of NHSBSA social work bursaries are capped each year and these are normally allocated on a first-come-first-served basis to applicants firmly accepting offers for the coming year.

NEFirst Postgraduate Loan Scheme
An MSW student can apply for a £4,000 loan towards fees at the beginning of Year 1 (which would be £2,000 for Year 1 and £2,000 for Year 2), but would only receive the £4,000 payment at the beginning of Year 2 after they have registered. Then they would start to repay the loan after they have completed the 2-year course, and would have 4 years to repay it. For further information on NEFirst loans please click here.
