    I've already been funded for one loan for a previous degree.

    I am beginning nursing in September with some NHS bursary.

    Can I get a maintence loan from SFE rather than just the £2000 that's it's saying I can get, as I can't afford to go uni otherwise. I am an independent student with no family for finance and unable to fit in the required number of hours of work to ensure I am able to pay my rent etc.

    Any help?

    Unfortuantely, all you're entitled to is part of the non-income assessed maintenance loan.

    You should also get the longer course loan.

    Hi what is the longer course loan please?

    Hi Ruthliz

    We can only offer the reduced rate maintenance loan for NHS funded courses. Any other funding is assessed by the NHS.

    These courses are a set amount and do not have a longer course portion.
