Hallo one and all ,

I could definitely use some help/advice from you knowledgeable people .I would be grateful for some information on the social work nhs bursary.
According to my understanding,the nhs pays the tution fees and gives the potential student a grant of about £3500.Is there any other financial assistance such as loans or other grants?
The prospective student(my friend) is 26,single and lives alone.She currently works full-time but would leave and study full-time with the odd part-time work.
So based on the above situation,would you be able to advice on the forms of financial assistance available.I would be very grateful for your time and input on the above matter.Thank you very much

If she hasn't already done a degree she should be able to get a normal student loan as well

No that's incorrect.

I am in the same situation and phoned both the nhs bursary helpline and the normal student loans help line.

She will get £4575, nothin pain towards her course fees and only £1050 student loan, maybe her course fees paid and no grant.

Very few have the 3.5k + course fees paid, and in that case only about 1.5k of the course fees are paid.

Ive been told that you get the NHS bursary and maintence loan. I think the general idea is that you would use the bursary to pay your tuition fees and then what left over + the tuition is fees is what you would live off. However you can use the money any way you want.

I am SW student in my first year of a BA. My partner is also a full-time student so our household income is nil apart from student loans and grants.

For your info I get the following;
£3225 tuition fees loan (so I dont actually see that)
£4659 maintenance loan
£2906 maintenance grant
£319 University bursary
£4575 SW bursary

For whatever reason, student finance awarded my partner less maintenance loan than me (?). It took student finance A LONG time to sort this out so get applying asap!!!
