Isle of Man & Channel Islands
Welcome to the School of Health & Rehabilitation
The School is happy to consider applications from students from the Isle of Man and Channel Islands. Under the NHS funding regulations, students from the Isle of Man and Channel Islands are not eligible for a NHS bursary to cover the tuition fees or maintenance. Students ordinarily resident in the Isle of Man or Channel Islands would be required to approach their own educational authority for financial support. See the following links for information on how to apply for funding from your education authority in the Isle of Man, Jersey or Guernsey.
The academic entry criteria are the same as for UK students, but please feel free to contact us directly if you want any further information.
If you have been ordinarily resident in the Isle of Man or Channel Islands for the past three years but become ordinarily resident in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland before the 1st September in the year you enroll on the Physiotherapy programme then it is likely that you will then qualify for a NHS bursary (as per the NHS residency below). Please do let us know, as early as possible, if this is likely to be the case for you.
To be eligible for NHS Bursary support ALL students regardless of nationality must be able to satisfy the following requirements on the first day of the first academic year of the course (the ‘prescribed date’) * On that day, all applicants must:
- be ordinarily resident in the United Kingdom, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man for the three years preceding the prescribed date, apart from occasional or temporary absences;
- be ordinarily resident in England, Scotland , Wales or Northern Ireland on the prescribed date (other than medical and dental students who must be ordinarily resident in England.);
- have ‘settled status’ in the UK - within the meaning of the Immigration Act 1971. This means that there must be no restrictions on your length of stay in the UK.
