    Hey,

    I'm wondering what the deal is for paying the tuition fees as of 2017 for an NHS course. I'm aware that it is not funded anymore, but what opportunities are there for a loan etc.? The course is £13,000 per year and I don't think I could afford to pay the fees myself. Anybody got any insight? Thanks in advance

    Someone else might be able to give you better advice but what I would say is wait until around feb/march next year as that is when the 2017/18 regulations should be out (There is no exact date but I think 16/17 were released feb)

    when the 17/18 regs and forms are released then there will be clear information on what funding will be available

    cheers

    Despite the fact they have introduced a new masters loan of up to 10k, this still wouldn't cover the cost. However, I know that Kings College is 6500 a year for Msc physiotherapy pre reg and other unis are staying at 9k. This 13k uni must be a one off! Best to wait until next year, you never know, they may introduce a new loan for this masters as I can't imagine there will be many applicants for the course due to the ridiculous costs!! They could just scrap it altogether, who knows....
