Hi,

I have received a conditional offer at Edge Hill for their MSC in Children's Nursing - Pre-registration, they are yet to release the cost of the course but it has been suggested that it will cost £9,250 a year.

I have done a little research and as far as I can tell the loan for a postgraduate is only £10,609 but this will not cover the total cost of the course or any living expenses. I have looked into some charities but there seems to be little financial support available.

Is there any additional funding I have missed? Any suggestions on how I can do this course.

I don't understand how a course in nursing will cost me an additional £16,500 to live and train. Any help will be much appreciated

Hi Ruthcha95,

You will be pleased to know from the 2018/19 academic year, funding will be offered for students on eligible Postgraduate Healthcare courses.

Pre-registration courses in Allied Health Profession subjects, Nursing and Midwifery that lead to a PG Diploma or Masters qualification

All previous study at a lower, equivalent or higher level, regardless of whether or not they gained the qualification will not affect their entitlement, however, they must not be professionally registered in the subject of study.

Students will be able to apply for the following undergraduate funding,

  • Tuition Fee Loan
  • Maintenance Loan - Students aged over 60 will be eligible for a reduced amount
  • Grants For Dependants
  • Disability Students Allowance

Thanks Rona

How does that work against my current undergraduate loan? (In terms of paying back) is it added to my current loan or separate?

Can you tell me if I can get a tuition fee loan? I am 60. Or is there any other help to pay the fees

Hi Ruthcha95,

Once you complete your Nursing course, from the April folllowing your graduation you will be eligible to make repayments to the total loan balance, but only once you are earning over the threshold. Although the loans are separate they are added together to make the total loan balance after your graduation.

Hi Rurhcha95

I have been offered a conditional place on the Adult Nursing MSc for this September.

I have got conflicting advice from the SLC, as to my eligibility for Tuition fees for the Postgraduate nursing course. 1 says I am eligible for a tuition fee loan and another says, that as I am now 60, I am not eligible for the tuition fee loan.

Please can you help?

Hi cavecat,

You are very welcome, as advised you can apply now, this PG Healthcare courses attract undergraduate support, just to clarify you are not applying for a Postgraduate Loan.
