Could someone please help and provide me with all the information that I am entitled to for University.
I am aiming to being in Sept this year, to complete my Mental Health Nursing Diploma;
My partner earns £1200 a month after deductions, we have one child living with us who we pay childcare for who is aged 7, his childcare costs at present total to around £3000 a year, and we rent our house £600 a month.
Can you please give me information as to what I can apply for and what we are entitled to, as I have been informed that I can only receive £6701 each year?
Thanks Faye Senior

If you are studying a nursing diploma rather than a degree you will be entitled to a non means-tested bursary of around £7000 from the NHS to pay for living costs, and the NHS will also pay your tuition fees.
As a result, you won't be eligible for any support from Student Finance England.
Contact the NHS student bursaries unit for more advice on applying for this - it's non-repayable too, which is a bonus.
