    Hi, I'm hoping to return to university to study Nursing. I failed my 3rd year of University in July because i was in the wrong course and mitigating circumstances. I was studying Health and Social care combined with Business, i gained an HND which i'm hoping i can use to apply for Nursing. I;m returning to a different university as my university said they wouldn't accept me back until September 2017. Is there any reason why i wouldn't be accepted into this new University to study Nursing? I meet all the entry requirements.

    Hi there

    To confirm - are you looking at starting from Level 4 (Year 1) for Nursing? I'm thinking that you might be due to the placement aspect of the course.

    I'm wondering because of the funding aspect. If you've used three years of funding (student loans), then you'd only be eligible for 1 further year from 2017 as the NHS won't be providing bursaries from next September.

    In terms of why wouldn't you get onto a course starting this September... I doubt that you would now as nursing courses are extremely competitive and you're a late applicant. Think of the amount of applications with the news of funding being withdrawn too.

    Hope this helps, claireestelle or ForestCat might be able to help you further!
