The PA programme is currently supported through the Welsh Government bursary. For 2022/23 we can confirm that we are offered 36 funded places on the PA programme.
Welsh Government has advised that funding for this course is only available for students who are willing to commit to 18 months of post-qualification employment in Wales. By accepting an offer of an interview you are confirming that you commit to this. Only individuals prepared to make this commitment will be eligible for the full funding package. Please advise us at your earliest opportunity if you wish to withdraw your application or do not wish to take up your offer of an interview. At this time we are not able to offer places for self-funding students.
NHS Wales Bursary Scheme
The Welsh Government, through NHS Wales, provides funding for the Physician Associate Course here at Swansea including the cost of the tuition fees. A non-means tested grant of £1000 for living costs can be applied for. A further means-tested bursary is also available. If eligible for the means-tested bursary may be supported for travel, accommodation (whilst on placement), Childcare, Disabled Student Allowance, Dependents Allowance and Parental Learning Allowance.
