Funding Support for NHS Scotland Employees
As a leading provider of professional education for the health sector, UWS has Service Level Agreements (SLAs) in place with some Health Boards to provide nursing and health-related modules and programmes at the University of the West of Scotland.
You need to apply to your employer to request SLA funding each academic year – funding is only granted for one academic year at a time – and, once approved by the SLA lead at your Health Board, they will inform UWS to exempt the appropriate tuition fee. Please visit the appropriate intranet site for your Health Board for further information. Note that the Health Boards normally open up their SLA funding application system around March/April each year for the next academic year ie the September that year, through to the August the following year. Most Health Boards also have closing dates, so please check out your intranet site ASAP, as you don’t want to miss out.
We currently have agreements in place with the following Health Boards:
- NHS Ayrshire & Arran
- NHS Dumfries and Galloway
- NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde
- NHS Highland (Argyll and Bute)
- NHS Lanarkshire
