Hi, I'm a mature student hoping to get in to uni this September, I currently work full time in order to pay my way.

I live alone
No children
Last year I took home 19k
No family
No dependants
Have to pay £220 per week before food but this includes council tax of £16 per week.

What I need to know is roughly how much funding would I get?

I would be studying to become a nurse, full time at Teesside uni, living in my flat test I currently rent.

Thanks in advance

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!

Hi guys!

I'm looking at applying for the Mental Health studies course at Plymouth University in 2016, I've found that the applicants are able to have the course funded by the NHS, and also have bursary funds, I've done the calculator and because my parents have a low income, I would have the full course paid for me, as well as a yearly loan (I think I'm right in saying this?) would I also be able to apply for the student finance from plymouth university too? Has anybody else applied for this or currently on a course funded by the NHS?


Many thanks!

Christopher

You can use our bursary
calculators
to find out if you are eligible to apply, what
your student status will be (independent/dependent) and provide you an estimate
of what you could receive in a basic award . The calculators should only be used as a guide. We cannot confirm
your eligibility or award entitlement until we have received and assessed your
online application through the Bursary Online Support System (BOSS) and all of
your supporting evidence, if requested.

Hi Christopher
Thanks for using our calculators and I hope you found them helpful. You are right that SFE offer a student loan however this is at a reduced rate for NHS funded students. I would recommend you ask them about this during their webchat 'Are you eligible for student finance?' today at 5.30-6.30pm. As far as funding from Plymouth uni goes each uni will have their own student finance advisor so perhaps have a chat to them.
Thanks
Darren

Hi,

I underwent one year of university before I realised the course was wrong for me and didn't continue with it.

I am now applying for diagnostic radiology, will I still be able to have Nhs funding even though I've had 1 year of government funding on a non-healthcare related course?
Hi
Yes you will be able to apply for an NHS Bursary as long as you are on an NHS funded pre-registration course. Your government funding would not be taken into account. Read more about our funding here: http://www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/Students/4032.aspx
Thanks
Darren
