If you're worried about the cost of going on a placement, you should check whether you are eligible for some additional financial support. BU offers funding to eligible students through the Placement Opportunity Fund.

The fund can help with expenses such as travel and clothing for interviews, travel to start placement, essential uniforms and tools, as well as Standard Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks, visas and inoculation costs.

Please note: Exceptional funding to cover additional expenses of placement due to the Coronavirus pandemic has been introduced for 2021/22.
