    Hi everyone

    I'm after some help. I am looking to apply for Midwifery in Swansea, Cardiff and University of South Wales but I need more information regarding finance. Basically I'm married and have two children under 3 and I'm already a qualified staff nurse. I applied for the short course midwifery but then they cancelled the course I was wondering if theres anyone here in a similar situation who can give me an idea of what they are entitled to? I believe I'd get the £1000 non-means tested NHS grant, £4395 means tested grant, £3583 maintenance loan and £1557 parent learner allowance. I think I might be entitled to some help toward childcare costs too. Am I right? Have I missed anything?
    Thanks so much for your help. I'm desperate to apply but I don't want to be irresponsible and need to know what our financial situation would be if I did.
