In 2014 I accepted a place to study midwifery and completed the first year. I took an intermission part way through the second year due to anxiety and depression surrounding my daughters ongoing battle with brain cancer. I restarted the second year in September 2016 but only completed three weeks before leaving the course completely.

The course was funded by the NHS and I received a bursary and the smaller maintenance loan. This was my second degree having obtained a law degree in 1998.

My question is, if I was to reapply for midwifery would I be entitled to have my tuition fees paid?

Hi Loulou76,

The Government announced that from 2017/18 academic year, new students studying Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professional (AHP) courses would no longer receive bursary funding from the NHS and will instead receive regular Student Finance England (SFE) support in the same manner as students studying non-NHS courses.

So returning to do midwifery as a designated NHS course it would be classed as an exception course so you would still get funding even though you have a degree already and previous study wouldn't affect your entitlement.

You would be able to apply for Tuition Fee Loan (TFL) for the remainder of your course. You can also apply for means tested Maintenance Loan (ML) and Supplementary Grants if applicable such as Parents' Learning Allowances (PLA), Childcare Grant (CCG), Adult Dependants' Grant (ADG) and Disabled Students' Allowances (DSA's).

Thanks

Thank you for your response. I would have to complete the full three years again so would I be entitled to the full three years of funding?

Hi Loulou76,

As advised I can confirm previous study wouldn't affect your entitlement as it is an exception course.

Thanks Rona
