    I am hoping to go to uni to study nursing and I was wondering if you could live of the SAAS nursing bursary. My sister will be going to uni at the same time as me which will be quite expensive. I was wondering if you can live of the bursary and if so what is it like?

    Thank you

    Standard Scottish nursing bursary is roughly £548 per month. Depends what you monthly outgoings are.

    I'm in the process of trying to sort out my finances next year, and it looks like I'm entitled to the minimum amount of just over £6500. It totally depends on your outgoings and costs, but I've worked out that I could probably squeeze by on that amount, however you might want to get some extra as it would leave none to spare after you've taken out accomodation (between 3 and 5k ish), travel etc etc.

    I used this, don't know if it'll help you at all http://international.studentcalculator.org/

    It's a scrape but if you're sensible you can get by. A lot of students take on jobs that are flexible so they can fit them round uni and placements. I had to when I was at uni.
