Financial support is available to BSMS students from the University of Sussex and the University of Brighton.

Students can contact the University of Brighton Student Advice Service in the first instance with queries about funding from either Brighton or Sussex. They can explain which funds you might be eligible for, and how to access them. Their experienced staff can also advise on statutory funding, accessing benefits, and making your money go further.

The University of Sussex can provide further financial support to students from lower income families. In 2020, eligible UK students with a household income of less than £25,000 are entitled to the following in addition to any UK Government support:

  • Year 1 – a £1,000 bursary 
  • Years 2, 3 and 4 – a £500 cash bursary in each year 
  • From the fifth year of study, eligible students will receive support from NHS Bursaries instead.
