Because these courses tend to change from year to year and often at short notice we cannot guarantee that it is a complete list of all eligible UK addictions courses, nor can we absolutely guarantee that the information will be up to date when you come to read it. Please visit the institution’s website or contact them directly to confirm that the course you are interested in is available.

The SSA has an annual bursary budget to fund students taking UK-based addictions students, disbursed on a rolling basis throughout the year.

Bursary applications from students on courses, such as public-health, not specifically based in addictions, will be considered where the applicant provides evidence of an addiction-focus to their intended study.
