I've applied to for child nursing starting 2013 but wondered if anyone can offer tips and advice on how to afford life as well! I'm a mature student and have lived out of my parents house for 5 years so don't really want to go back. I know we are entitled to bursaries but does anyone know of any extra help that can be applied for or is anyone else in this situation and is working feasible alongside studying? Thanks

You will find the vast majority of people on a nursing course are mature students of some degree. A lot have families of their own, it's not like a lot of the more traditional courses which are mostly populated by 18 year olds fresh out of sixth form. A lot of universities have some form of support for students that you can apply for, and working while discouraged due to the workload of the pre reg course, is possible. I worked throughout my course, I wouldn't have survived otherwise.
