Social work bursary

Bursaries may be available for some full-time students following the qualifying Master of Social Work (MSW) programme.

The bursary consists of:

  • a non-income assessed basic grant - including a fixed contribution towards practice learning opportunity related expenses and tuition fee support; and
  • an income assessed maintenance grant and income assessed allowances to assist with certain cost of living (as recipients of the postgraduate bursary will not ordinarily be entitled to local authority funding).

Financial awards are dependent on individual circumstances.

For more information, see the NHS Business Services Authority website.

If you are starting a course at Kingston, you will be able to apply for a loan of up to £10,000 to study for a postgraduate masters degree.
