    I’ve been assessed and accepted for a post grad load by student finance but my university are saying I’m not entitled to it because I’m getting a wage and going to uni is part of my new job role ... which is true but I’m not entitled to an NHS bursary but they are saying my place is commissioned and so it’s the equivalent of a bursary ... but I’ve checked with NHS bursaries and I’m not entitled to a bursary and I pay tax and national insurance on my wages ...I work three days and attend uni two days (MSc) I have no tuition fees as the course is over two years and paid for as part of my job ... but the student finance company say the loan can be used for tuition fees and /or living costs .... ? Can anyone shed any light on this matter ?
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
