I am in process of applying to the PgDip In Adult nursing at 3 universities (all in London), and I'm becoming increasingly confused about the NHS bursary reforms. I will be coming from the North, and do not know anyone who lives in London, so will be having to rent accommodation. Am I right in thinking that postgraduate courses will also be transferred to the loans system, and will receive up to the proposed £12,000 a year?
If this is the case, is any assistance provided with living/accommodation costs? The reason I ask this is because I would like to live in postgraduate halls (studio flat etc.), the cheapest of which seem to be priced at £220 upwards. This totals over £11,000 over a 48 week period, which seems to be extremely expensive, and virtually unaffordable if living on a £12,000 loan (taking into account food, travel costs etc.)? Does anyone who currently studies at KCL, or City currently live in postgrad accommodation, and get by with the alarmingly expensive rent?
