    I was wondering how student finances for nurses worked. Do i just apply for bursaries or do i apply somewhere else as well. And did you guys have to provide your universities an employers reference. City is asking for one and i was wondering if anyone else that accepted City were asked the same thing.
    You apply to NHS bursaries for the bursary and to Student Finance England if you want a student loan.

    I supplied a employers reference during my City application, I had to submit an academic and employer reference. But if you're not currently employed, I think you can give them a reference from someone in good public standing eg. a doctor, nurse, teacher ect. But if you're not sure, call admissions and they'll be able to advise you.

    Yeah it's just for your loan. There is a section on the application that discusses tuition fees but as soon as you put you're on an NHS course it will tell you they're already paid ect

    Regarding funding. I have already applied for the bursary and maintenance loan but it's not going to go very far. Does anyone know of anything else I could apply for?

    Check your universities scholarships out. Some universities give out generous scholarships depending on individual situations. Some also offer hardship funds to students where they'll give you a one off payment (ours is £1000) to help you out, but again you have to apply ect.

    The tests aren't difficult. The maths you can use a calculator and it consists of addition, subtraction, division, measurements and problem solving. The English is split into 3 sections: Grammar, comprehension and a short essay question. Then depending on the branch of nursing you want to do, there's a short aptitude test which gives you different scenarios you have to answer

    2 Surrey
    3 City
    4 Kingston
    5 London Southbank

    Hey!

    You sound like you have loads of good, relevant experience - make sure to emphasise that on your personal statement!

    I'm a current child student, just about to go into my 3rd year at City if you have any questions
