We welcome applications from overseas graduates, although 3 years UK residence is required to be eligible to apply for a NHSBSA bursary to pay your fees and living expenses, see further details. If English is not your first language please see the specific MA Social Work English language requirements.
The NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) administers two types of bursaries for students studying social work. They are the social work bursary and the postgraduate bursary. Eligible students will receive the appropriate bursaries depending on their course.

You are charged on a yearly basis as you progress through the programme stages. The University of York also offers an instalment payment plan to self-funding students whereby 50% of the fee (for each individual stage of the programme) is paid at the start of the academic year, followed by two further instalments of 25% at the start of the second and third term. (Please note: we understand that it is likely that this instalment arrangement will change to 2 payments of 50% each, 3 months apart in the 2013/4 academic year) Alternatively, it is possible to pay the entire Masters fee in full at the start of the programme. Sponsors of students are expected to pay in full at the start of each stage.
