One of the benefits of studying with Education for Health is that we can guide you towards funding opportunities. These are available from a variety of sources: charities, external organisations, pharmaceutical companies and employers. Take advantage of our industry links and advice to help to secure potentially valuable funding for training.

As a charity, we work hard to keep costs to a minimum and this is reflected in our prices for our courses. We are sometimes able to offer Education for Health bursaries, and always update details of these here on our website when available.

For information on bursary opportunities and other Education for Health news and updates, please register for our newsletter.

Build your case for funding

We have created a Business Case Toolkit to help nurses and other healthcare professionals build their case for securing funding for education and training from their CCG or other funding source, you can download this here.

Pharmaceutical industry bursaries

We are often fortunate to be able to offer part sponsorship for courses through the pharmaceutical companies that we work with. Support can even extend to providing education and training free of charge.

November 2020: Our recent bursary was very popular and has now closed. The best way to find out quickly about our open bursaries is to be subscribed to our newsletters and if we do share news of a bursary, we recommend acting quickly, as they are always very popular and funding does have to be limited.

Please sign up for our newsletter to hear latest news.
