Apply for a funded place on the pilot module

Health Education England (HEE) will fully fund 15 places on the pilot Data Engineering module that begins in October 2022.


HEE funded places on the pilot module are open to clinical staff working in, or delivering services to, the NHS in England.

In allocating places, we will aim to enable as widespread a representation of healthcare professional groups and roles as possible across the 15 funded places.

To apply for a funded place, after you have completed the standard application for a place on the module via the University of Manchester, you need to complete HEE’s funded places application form.  As part of this application, you are asked to provide three short supporting statements:

  1. A copy of the personal statement that you supplied as part of your University of Manchester application.
  2. Where will you apply what you learn? – a description and analysis of a problem in your workplace that you will seek to address with what you learn from the Data Engineering module
  3. What support do you have? – an outline of the support and connections that you can call upon to help you to practically apply what you learn from the module

Each of the three supporting statements that you provide on page 3 of the form, will be scored anonymously and independently by at least two members from HEE’s team of assessors. You may wish to prepare your supporting statements in advance and then paste your copy into the form. To help you to prepare you can download a file containing a copy of all the questions.

Applications for funded places on the pilot module will close on 22nd August 2022.
