How is life with the nursing bursary? (Scotland) Is it actually £500 a month?Watch
I can see the advantages and disadvantages, but I really don't know. So you get money you don't have to pay back (also does it actually work out to £500 a month?), but you work full time half the year whilst also keeping on top of course work. Does the bursary help make ends meet? Or have yous found yourselves need to take up work when not on placement?
Most people do have jobs alongside the course, but whether you can balance that and studying really depends on your own personality and how much stress you can deal with.
