    Can anyone please advice me on finance for a 2nd degree in Nursing. I know I am still eligible for funding as the degree is exempt and that I will have to apply for the tuition loan like everyone else for September 2017.

    As there will be no bursary from next year what am I looking to be able to apply for?

    Student loan for tuition
    Maintenance loan (reduced?)



    The above is taken from here. Anyone know what the reduced loan amount is?

    When will all the new changes be confirmed?
    What do PGDip students get?

    https://www.gov.uk/government/consul...tion-is-funded has more information and the consultation itself is here: https://consultations.dh.gov.uk/work...cation-funding

    The equality impact assessment https://www.gov.uk/government/upload...HS_bursary.pdf states that they're investigating whether PGDips should be continued under the new system and if so how they should be funded.
    "We acknowledge that there are currently a potentially small number of postgraduate healthcarecourses (such as healthcare postgraduate diplomas and three year health care masters degrees)which would not be eligible for a Postgraduate Masters Loan under the current rules for eligibility.In the consultation, we set out that the Department will consider how the provision of these courseshelps meet the NHS workforce supply requirements. DH will work with health and education sectorstakeholders over the coming period to identify the full set of impacted courses and to consider thepotential support or solutions that can be made available."

    Page 26 of http://www.practitioners.slc.co.uk/m...ide_1617_d.pdf has the current minimum loan rates.

    My understanding is that healthcare students will no longer get any bursary and so will be eligible to claim for the full maintenance loan
