Bursary Application Process - Step 1

The Homa bursary criteria include:

  • Historical discrimination faced by your people.

  • Your financial wealth.

  • Your access to income and financial wealth, both current and anticipated.

  • People counting on your financial livelihood including dependents, family and community members.

Additional criteria, you will have experienced at least one of the following:

  • Attended a non selective, state secondary school from year 7

  • Received free school meals

  • Your parents or carers were in receipt of state benefits


It is central to the Homa ethos to welcome and support people who want to become psychotherapists and who have the commitment and motivation needed. We are committed to making our training accessible to people who want to enter the profession and do not have the means to cover the full cost of the training. Homa bursaries are intended for people who would otherwise have no access to professional psychotherapy training. 


The bursary is offered in the form of reduced training fees of up to a maximum of 75% of the annual course fee. Personal Tutor meetings, personal therapy and supervision are additional costs not covered by the bursary. It is also possible to find these at reduced fees, and this would be the responsibility of the trainee.
