    Hi,

    I remember reading somewhere that as well as applying for an NHS Bursary you may be able to also apply for a lesser amount of Student Loan.

    Can anyone advise how to do this? Do we just apply as everyone else with Student Finance and declare somewhere that we will be in receipt of a bursary? Do I need to wait and find out how much I will get for my bursary first?

    Thanks!

    You qualify for a reduced loan from SFE - its about £2300 - and you apply for it in the usual way but as you say declare that you are eligible for the NHS bursary/tuition fees paid.
