Very pleased to hear student nurses will get the extra NHS grant. Will we still be able to get full Maintenance loan on top or is it going to be given with one hand and taken away with another?

Hi Loriimp, you will still be able to receive a Maintenance Loan however we have no information as to what amount you will receive. We expect more information to be released once the 20/21 academic year launches.
Thanks, Isaac.

The guidance we have been given is that it will not affect your Tuition Fee Loan and Maintenance Loan (you will still receive both) but we don't know how much you will be able to receive, whether it is the reduced amount or the full amount.
Thanks, Isaac.

Thanks. So if it is the reduced amount then it does affect it and is pointless

The information available right now is very limited. We only know that you will be able to receive a Maintenance Loan and Tuition Fee Loan(if eligible).

Here is everything we have been told so far.

What funding is available
Students studying on nursing, midwifery, dental hygiene, dental therapy and many allied health professional courses from September 2020 are set to receive at least £5,000 a year in additional funding for maintenance and associated study costs. There will also be up to a further £3,000 additional funding for childcare costs, and students in regions or specialisms struggling to recruit.

More information regarding student eligibility will be released in due course.


New and returning students will be able to apply

When will funding be available
This funding will become available from the next academic year, starting September 2020. As with student loan payments, funding will be phased over the academic year.

Which courses are included?
The additional funding will be available to pre-registration undergraduate and postgraduate students starting or continuing on nursing and midwifery courses at degree level in the 2020/21 academic year. The same funding is also being made available to support undergraduate and postgraduate students starting or continuing on courses in many allied health subjects and dental hygiene and dental therapy in 2020/21.

Students on the following pre-registration degree courses would benefit from this support

Dietetics
Dental hygiene or dental therapy (level 5 courses)
Occupational therapy
Operating department practitioner (level 5 courses)
Orthoptics
Orthotics and prosthetics
Physiotherapy
Podiatry or chiropody
Radiography (diagnostic and therapeutic)
Speech and language therapy
Paramedicine
Midwifery
Nursing (adult, child, mental health, learning disability, joint nursing/social work)


What about part time?
We have no information about part time students yet

Will this have an impact on any benefits?
It will be for other Government departments to determine the impact of this additional funding on benefits they pay.

Will the Maintenance Loan or Tuition Fee loan be affected?
Students will be able to continue to access funding for tuition fee and maintenance loans.

Is the bursary repayable?
No

Is the bursary available to students studying at universities in Scotland/Northern Ireland and Wales?
No, the bursary will be available to SFE domiciled students studying courses in England only.


This is all the information we have available right now regarding the NHS bursary. We do expect to have more information available once the 20/21 academic year launches.
We do not know if the bursary will be through the NHS bursary scheme or through SFE. If it's through the NHS bursary scheme then I expect their website to be updated with more information https://www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk

I know it's frustrating that you are unsure what you will be awarded. I'm positive more information will be released soon.
Thanks, Isaac.

Do we know the update / outcome of this? Can we still apply for the full maintenance loan, in addition to the £5000 grant?
