Does anyone know if the new September 2020 AHP/nursing/midwifery £5000+ bursaries apply to Northern Ireland?
Have seen reference to students at ‘English’ universities in articles which doesn’t seem to include NI.
These courses are tuition fee free in Northern Ireland for Northern Irish students, so that may be why it wouldn’t apply. Does anyone know?

Higher Education funding is devolved to the NI Assembly, so only they can authorise changes to NI healthcare students' funding (annoying I know, as I'm from NI originally, but now living in England for quite a few years, and applying for healthcare courses here as an England-domiciled student).

Unfortunately it's unlikely the NIA will give similar extra funding for NI courses, as even second degree funding for healthcare courses is not available in NI.

The problem is that you need to be living therefore purposes other than education. I can't tell you if they'd believe you were living there for non-educational purposes (e.g. living with your family in England, and just happened to go to uni there also). All I can suggest is contacting SFE andseeing what they say.

If they reject your application, then you may have to live in England a further year outside of education, or show other strong connections there to convince them it's your permanent residence now.
