The Government have recently announced that from 2017/18 AY new students studying Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professional (AHP) courses will no longer receive bursary funding from the NHS and will instead receive regular SFE support in the same manner as students studying non-NHS courses.
This means they will be eligible for tuition fees(TF) of up to £9250, plus any additional TF increases and the full means tested maintenance loan. They will also be able to apply for Disabled Students Allowance and Grants for Dependents.
Please be assured that students will be able to borrow as much as they need to pay for their tuition fees up to a maximum of £9250.
- although we appreciate that students are now liable for tuition fees when they weren’t before it may be useful to note that NHS students will now receive 25% more in maintenance finance than they did previously.
