Hello Darren,

I have been wondering, if there is any additional financial help for undergraduate medical students (apart from those already available for home students) ?

Hi, ive applied to study children's nursing which makes me entitled to a NHS bursary. Could I still apply for a grant from Student Finance?

What funding is there for NHS students? This comes up time and time again in student financial support and aside from something about tuition fees being paid and a reduced maintenance loan, I'm not really sure of the funding.

And placements and travel - funding?

Hi there, I was just wondering what people can tell me about NHS bursaries? I am applying to do nursing and have been told I might be eligible for some NHS bursaries. I have looked on the NHS bursaries website but it seems a bit unclear. Any advice?
Thank you!

The NHS is a obviously a massive issue in the election this year. Could there by any change to NHS funding if the government changes or is that a stupid question?
If someone if looking to become a doctor, could things change a lot in the next few years (has much changed in the past?)

Hi Darren, Im currently a student studying chiropractic in oxford, I am thinking about applying to Warwick post graduate medical school in September to start in September 2016. I was wondering when I should start applying to the NHS for a bursary or if im actually eligible for one. I have done the test on the NHS website and they say I am, but I was wondering if Warwick would be an NHS funded uni?

Thanks

May I ask how the funding process works with regards to NHS funded courses? Does the funding provided by the NHS cover students for all years of study for example? Some general information about this would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks

Most NHS students can still apply for the none means tested student loan as well as being in receipt of the bursary.

Hello
The funding available is for NHS commissioned courses only therefore you will first need to be offered a place on such a course by your university. For nursing this must be a pre-registration course. If you are then a means tested bursary, non-means tested grant and other allowances are available.

If major changes are introduced communications well in advance will be issued and made available to anyone who may be affected.

If you are applying for your NHS Bursary for the first time please visit our website http://www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/Students/4002.aspx to find out when to make your application. You may wish to contact Warwick university to confirm if this course attracts NHS funding from year 2.
