    I really have an interest in studying Midwifery, I have since I was young however I was unsure when I was applying to university's, so instead I applied for Psychology, I ended up doing 2 years Psychology, failed my second year due to personal circumstances - I did apply for CPR and was told on the phone I had one year funding back - then changed to Law (my head was all over the place at this stage, big mistake) I left uni cos i realised the course I was doing wasn't for me, So i basically have no years of funding left. I thought why not apply for Midwifery - but i just learnt about the change in tuition fee's for Midwifery, Nursing etc.. but I have read anyone who has studied previously but wishes to complete a Midwifery/Nursing course is eligible for further funding for these courses, is this true? or is it only available to students who completed the course and not for anyone that has failed?

    Hi chelz182,

    From 17/18 nursing/midwifery courses will be eligible to receive full SFE funding for any of these courses and any years of previous study will be disregarded.

    Thanks

    So it doesnt matter whether or not you have failed/dropped out?

    Hi chelz182,

    That's correct, you can still apply for funding if you have withdrawn from your previous course.

    Thanks
