Distance learning is the ideal choice for those who need flexibility in their studies.

This is an exciting opportunity for prospective nursing students to choose a flexible route to study, using innovative technologies to connect with University and practice, and which will support Health Boards across Wales to provide the nursing workforce needed to meet the needs of local populations.


We currently offer undergraduate distance-learning degrees in:

Tuition Fees Covered

If you are considered a home UK student for tuition fees who can commit to working in Wales for two years after graduating, you could get your tuition fees covered in full through the NHS Wales Bursary Scheme and claim for a £1,000 bursary contribution towards living costs. You can also apply for the means tested bursary that is dependent on household income and other funding that has eligibility criteria for childcare support, dependents allowance and parental learner allowance.  You can also apply for the income-based maintenance funding and a reduced rate loan from Student Finance. As this course is funded by NHS Wales, we are unable to accept applications from international students.  

Full details are available on our NHS funding page.

Student IT Bursary

Bangor University in partnership with HEIW will ensure that access to technology is not a barrier for suitably qualified applicants wanting to pursue a career in healthcare. Under this scheme applicants to this course are eligible for a £400 bursary (terms and conditions apply) to support the purchase of a computer if they are resident in one of the lowest 20% (areas 1-382) of the Welsh Index of Multiple Deprivation. You can see if your postcode qualifies you on this Welsh Government page.
