Hi there,

Our MSc Physician Associate is partly funded. You will need to pay £2,750 and the rest is funded by Health Education England. You can find out more here: http://www.herts.ac.uk/courses/msc-p...ociate-studies

Best of luck!

Thanks,
Heather

Hi fuzzmuzz


I've contacted the programme leader for the MSc Physician Associate programme and they let me know that there will be some funding for students for 2018 entry but we are still waiting for the details to be confirmed. We are hoping to know this by Mid April.

Thanks,
Heather

Hi,i was wondering if you can give more information on the course content as there isn't much on the website. i think hertfordshire is a great choice for me as the distance is close. can you also give us some information on who the course is run by i.e PA/drs? the website doesn't seem to have any structure.

Hi Heather,

Thank you for your response. I have now applied for the course and hoping to be accepted.

I was also wondering about the funding that is available. I understand this has not been cleared yet however, i noticed that students are provided £2,750 per year. does this include the placement element that is being funded by Health Education England? or is this an additional support students receive?

thank you

Good evening. I am due to begin the PA programme next month at the university and I am looking forward to starting. But i am in a situation where i am worried about the funding. the 5K grant is not being provided and so i am in the process of having my postgraduate loan approved, i had also believed that the career development loan would be the best option for me and after applying, the funding had been declined. After appealing and explaining my situation where i had spent the last 3 years studying nursing and now am a registered nurse and that i have been a student since leaving college after finishing my A-levels and that it would be very beneficial for my career development to provide the loan to me, whilst explaining that i will be working in the NHS regardless and will be earning above the threshold and will definitely be able to pay it back they had still chose to decline. I find this outrageous that they are not able to help those who are choosing to work hard to work in the health service. This leaves me with the option to get a personal loan from a bank and this would be unhelpful as i would have to start paying this back straight away which adds to living costs (rent, bills etc). And so i am running out of options for funding. I would appreciate any advice, but i would like to add that i have tried almost every option..
