    Hello,

    I'm wondering if I can have some info on what finance is avalible for students wishing to start Adult Nursing degree in September 2018. I've tried having a look myself on the internet but it's a bit confusing. I'm just getting worried that I won't be able to afford uni as I have a mortgage and other commitments to pay and I wont have a job when I start Uni.
    Kind regards, Helen

    I'm an EU student due to study Medicine in 2018. I know that I can get a tuition fee loan for years 1-4 as an EU student but am I also eligible for the NHS funding in year 5? Thanks in advance.

    Hi Helen

    If you're going to start an undergraduate Nursing degree in September, these are now fully funded through student loans. Unfortunately I cant tell you exactly what you would get through this thread, but there is a very useful forum tomorrow entitled 'SFE Funding for NHS Courses' -
    https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5188348
    and they should definitely be able to point you in the right direction.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Hi Amylia

    At the moment, those are the current arrangements and NHS Bursaries and/ or tuition fee awards are available for medical students who reach their 5th year of study in 2018/19. However we are unable to say what NHS funding will be available after August 2019 as we can only say with certainty what will be in place for around one academic year in advance. No decisions have been made as to whether NHS funding will be available in 2023/24 and will not be for some time.

    I am very sorry not to be able to answer your question but I would like to wish you well with your medical course.
    Kind regards

    Kim

    Hi, unfortunately we can only answer direct queries about NHS Funding for healthcare courses on this particular forum.

    However as well as student loans from SFE we at the NHS Business Services Authority administer additional financial support for healthcare students. You might want to visit our website for further information about our Learning Support Fund -

    Thanks and good luck with your course.:)
