Hi
I am posting to find out if i would be entitled to any suppory from student finance england. I previously studied bsc hons adult nursing and received an nhs bursary and a reduced rate maintenance loan and i lived with my parents. I am now studying a bsc hons shortened midwifery course, of which my first degree was a course requirement and of which i am seconded for and is funded by nhs northwest. I now live with my fiance as of april 2015 and we both contribute to rent and living costs. I have taken a paycut to do this course and was receiving a loan but slc have now said i am entitled to nothing and have to pay it back as i am seconded, not entitled to a bursary and am studying a second degree that is of the equivalent level to my first. Reading online it seems others have gone through this, as have some of my classmates who have then got somr form of support. Its so annoying! Any help would ve greatly appreciated

In the guardian I read that George Osborne is cutting off the nhs funding for nursing courses starting July 2017. Does this mean other health related will courses will not be funded for anymore as well? For example radiography? Please help. I really need to know

Studying at english university, in 4th year of medical school. Applied for intercalation between Year 4 - Year 5. What am I eligible for? both in terms of tuition fees and maintenance.

So far I have received the minimum loan of ~£3500 for maintenance each year. And tuition has been paid directly to my uni, ~£5500 of it as a grant (like it is for every welsh student) and ~£3500/year loan that I'll have to pay back.

What happens in the final year (5th year) of study of a medical degree? and what are the rules for intercalated year? when i applied i thought i would be doing a 5 year degree (not 6). I have heard that the NHS might pay towards something for every year after 4th year? is this just for tuition, if so what about maintenance?

Thanks!

Hi

Thank you for your query. I am very sorry to hear you are experiencing problems with slc funding, but unfortunately we can only advise on NHS bursaries in this forum.

You may be best contacting SLC directly to discuss your case, however normally seconded students are not entitled to any student funding such as the NHS Bursary, and I can only assume it is the same for student loans, as you are receiving a salary from your employer, which in most cases is higher than any student support you could receive.

There is another forum taking place today from 5.30pm called Are
you eligible for student finance?
- you may be able to find out more information then.

Sorry not to be able to assist

Kind regards

Kim

Hi, thanks for your query

NHS Bursaries are available to medical students from their 5th year of study. This may be earlier than course Year 5 as intercalation years are counted towards this. If you are undertaking an intercalation in 2016-17 and this will be your 5th year of study, providing you meet the NHS Bursary residency requirements, you would be able to apply for a non-means tested grant, payment of your tuition fee contribution and a means-tested bursary.

Further information is avaialable via the NHS Bursary 'Ask Us' Service, which provides answers to a huge range of questions about NHS Bursary funding. Have a look here . There is also further information on the NHS Student Bursary website


I hope you find this information helpful
Many thanks

Kim
