    Hello all,

    I would just like to get a definitive answer on what funding I will be eligible for when I apply for 2017, now that the NHS bursaries have been scrapped.

    I originally studied Mathematics and Spanish language, graduating in 2011, and received both tuition fee and maintenance loans at the time. I now wish to re-train as a midwife but, as I need time to complete an Access Course to get the relevant foundations for the science-based course, I will be applying for September 2017 entry.

    Can I apply for tuition fee and maintenance loans from Student Finance? Are any of these means-tested? I think I will be applying for the three-year BSc midwifery qualification, given that my degree is not relevant to nursing/midwifery.

    Thank you for the help,
    Rachel

    Yes you can apply for everything (as far as they've announced so that) and the maintenance loan will be means tested.
