    Hello,
    Please could you explain (in layman's terms - I am not very money-literate, e.g. is the NHS bursary in addition to the government paying some of the fees, or are they the same thing??) how funding works for graduate entry medicine?
    I am a UK citizen, always lived here, took out a student loan for my first degree.
    Thanks
    Hi there

    I can only tell you what the funding arrangements are currently, please check with the university you are applying to for up to date information about funding. In year 1 you will have to pay some of the fees yourself (currently £3465) but you can apply for a tuition fee loan to help with the remainder. You can also access a student loan for living costs. From year 2 onwards funding is currently available for part of the fee from NHS and part of the fee as a tuition fee loan. You can also apply to the NHS for help with living costs.

    As I say, please check for up to date information before committing to this course.

    I have been offered a place at John Moores University to study Adult Nursing, but I am unsure about how to apply for a bursary, maintenance loan and means tested. Also I am not sure when I should apply for this; because I am still waiting for an insurance choice from my other 4 universities.
    Hi there

    When you have your place for 2016 you can apply for an NHS bursary from www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/students, that includes means tested support. You can also apply for a reduced rate loan from Student Finance England.
