A bit of an update on this topic. I spoke to my LEA yesterday (Leeds) about the new rules that exclude second-time undergrads from the non-means tested maintenance loan. They told me that physiotherapy is included under the umbrella of medical courses that are eligible for the maintnenance loan. They said this applies to all NHS health professional courses, including SLT.

Im trying to understand all this - honest. But its so confusing. My parents combined income for last year was more than 40k. Does this mean i dont get anything. I tried asking the "advisors" at my collage but they were useless, didn't have a clue when it came to NHS burseries.

So, i apply for the non-income assessed maintainance loan, i get that part.
Do i need to apply for the tuition fee loan?
I dont apply for the maintainance grant?
Then, once this is done, i get seperate forms to apply for an NHS bursery?

BTW - this is for physiotherapy, if that has any bearing on what i apply for - like i said, i really dont have a clue whats going on!

yep...apply for the non income assessed loan, you don't need tuition fee loan (NHS bit pays that)...i don't think you can get the maintenacne grant, but someone correct me if i'm wrong! Then the NHS student grants unit will send you out forms for the NHS bursary...i believe anyhow!

yup you're rigght Kirsty - they have to apply for the non-income assessed laon (to the poster - it wouldn't matter if you're parents ernt less as you're only eligible for non means tested due to the bursary)......................do n't apply for tuition fee though - and you're not eligible for he maintenance grant either because you're applying for non means tested. The bursary forms are sent seperately by the bursary people

Oaky thanks for your help with that.

Ive applied for the non-income assessed maintainance loan, but now i have to send evidence of the result of my application for an NHS bursary. I ahvent even been sent the forms yet.
Will my application not be completed until i've sent this stuff off? Considering the time it takes for my bursary application to go through am i going to end up missing the deadline for the maintainance loan?
Even then, do i have to send the original copy of the result for the bursary, or will a photocopy be okay?

it doesn't matter how much money your parents earn because you're studying for an NHS degree (if it was any other degree then it would). Because you're eligible to apply for a NHS bursary you can only apply for a non means tested loan regardless of how much your parents earn. You do NOT need to apply for the tuition fee loan. And you CANNOT apply for the maintenance grant as you are only eligible for this if you are apply for income assesed loan which you are not.

NHS bursary forms are seperate

as far as I know you don't need to send evidence of applying for the bursary. I never had to this year and I never did last year. All you have to do is tick the box saying that you will be applying

I did that on the online form, and when i had aplplied it came up with a list of things i had to send off as evidence of my identity, place of birth etc. It also asked for evidence for the result of my bursary application. I dont know what to do

I said i would be applying for the income assessed bursary. Does that make a difference. Have i applied for the wrong one?

no, income assessed bursary is right

I would call the SLC as I've enever had to give evidence of how much bursary I'm getting

to my knowledge yes - nursing students arent entitled to a loan if they do a diploma course because they get a greater amount of bursary
