Hi,
I've recently applied for my student finance and just received a letter saying how much loan I'll get. It's barely enough to pay rent for the length of the course. (Midwifery)
I've heard if you apply to get the £1000 non means tested NHS bursary, the amount of maintenance loan you receive is lessened. Is this true? If so, is it compulsory to apply for the nhs bursary?

Please help! :confused:
Thank you

Hi there,

As an NHS student, the majority of your finance will come through the NHS. All NHS funded students are eligible for reduced rate maintenance loan only.

If a student is eligible to apply for the NHS Bursary but due to their income, they are not awarded this, they will still only be eligible to receive the standard Reduced Rate Maintenance Loan from Student Finance as they have underlying eligibility to the NHS Bursary.


Thanks
