    Hi hope someone can give me a definitive answer to this question: Im starting this degree in April 2017 and as far as Im aware will receive the NHS Bursary along with other grants / loans as well as having tuition fees paid for the full three years of my degree. I was 100% sure of this until reading some posts on here. Can anyone confirm?
    Thanks in advance.

    I believe you are in the clear as the last admission to receive an NHS bursary, I think the date it is being scrapped is the 1st August 2017.

    Thanks for that. I noted your further point re removal being a travesty, It will also rule out most people over a certain age considering the profession. I certainly dont want to be paying back student loans until the day I retire. As it is I will need to take the full amount of the reduced maintenance grant from SFE every year as well as work part time to support my family.
