Instructions[edit]

Travel Grant: You can get a grant towards reasonable costs for travel to and from:

  • the place in the UK where your clinical training takes place; or
  • the country you have to go to if you're studying abroad.

Applicants must know that the Travel Grant will only cover reasonable travel expenses and the first 303 must be paid by the applicant.

If you have extra travel costs because you're disabled or have a specific learning difficulty, you should apply for Disabled Students' Allowances instead.

As well as a Travel Grant, you can also get help to cover the cost of medical insurance, visa costs and vaccinations.
