NHS Funded Courses
The NHS (National Health Service) usually pays the tuition fees on behalf of students for a number of bachelor degrees that are relevant to health. Students studying NHS Funded courses usually require a higher English level than usual Bachelor degrees and competition to secure a place is much higher, this mainly being because of the few places available.
These courses include Physiotherapy, Podiatry, Occupational Therapy, Dietetics, Radiography, Nursing, Midwifery and Radiotherapy.
