Pre-Registration Health and Social Care Bursary
In response to the changes in financial support arrangements for students on formerly NHS funded courses, Canterbury Christ Church University has committed £200,000 to support students starting on Health and Wellbeing courses.
The Pre-Registration Health and Social Care Bursary is an award of up to £1,000 per year of study and will be available to students who come from a household with a combined income of less than £25,000.
Bursary recipients living in Canterbury Christ Church University owned accommodation, in their first year, will have 50% of the award automatically allocated towards the cost of accommodation. There is also the option to allocate the total amount towards accommodation payment.
The bursary will be awarded in date order once the eligible student has confirmed their place at Canterbury Christ Church University and the University has received household income information via Student Finance England loan application.
It is essential that all students give Student Finance England consent to share household income information on their loan application. The University will pre-screen applications for eligibility and will contact successful applicants with confirmation of the bursary.
CCCU Advantage Package
Our aim is to ensure that there are no hidden initial costs when commencing your Health and Wellbeing course. Any additional costs to pre-registration health and social care students should be kept to a minimum, therefore, we will be providing all our students commencing courses affected by the NHS bursary changes from September 2017 with extra funding support as part of your course fees.
The CCCU Advantage Package includes:
- Disclosure & Barring Service check
- Occupational Health costs, including immunisation
Please note: Awards are limited and eligibility does not guarantee receipt of award.
