Grants are available from Somerville to help BMBCH (Bachelor of Surgery and Bachelor of Medicine) students with the cost of essential medical equipment.


All enrolled BMBCH students can apply for this funding. Students who are on suspension are not eligible. 

Award levels

Up to £150 for each item of medical equipment.

Application process

Please complete the application form and attach evidence of your purchase. As BMBCH students have different term dates, claims for purchases can be made throughout the year. The deadline for claims is your course completion date.

Application form



The award will be placed on your battels account and then paid into your UK bank account. Please note that the award will offset any existing battels account debits before the balance is paid.
