    Is the DHSS bursary to cover your fees or is it for living expenses. Do we pay fees and if so how. Surely if you are on 2 year graduate programme and had student finance in the past for your previous degree you won't receive it again? Is anyone clear about this?

    I think it's for living expenses although I'm not too sure. With student finance you are entitled to a loan for fees but can't receive any grants etc because we get the bursary from dhssps.

    I rang student finance ni, they don't offer a full loan if you have a previous loan. However they do offer a maintenance loan (u have to re pay, not as much as usual loan) and also a fee cover loan (u also repay after u earn enough). In addition I can apply for child care grant. Because of the nature of this course, we need additional help as often students have previous degree debt (I do!)

    They are very friendly, give them a call (open 8-8) and they will talk you through what you are entitled to. Try to have your previous loan info handy as they look you up on their system and it took me a few tries at tempering all my old addresses

    I rang student finance and they informed me you're entitled to full support and that there are no caps on entitlement?
