Financial Hardship

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    After getting rejected from Queen's this morning I only hold one uni offer for adult nursing at Edinburgh Napier but there's no way I can afford it with just the SAAS bursary. So I'm just wondering what I should do?

    All I can find on the SAAS website is that you're entitled to a bursary of £6578 per year plus an initial expenses allowance. There might be a harship fund from your uni if you're really struggling that much?

    There is a discretionary fund for financial hardship but it's not accessible for nursing students. Same goes for the merit bursary and the access bursary. It's like there's no extra help out there for nursing students
