Hi, I have just been told that I am eligible for the Msc in Nursing. However I am really confused what funding I would be eligible for. I am reading in different places that I am not really eligible for anything. Then found this on Martin Lewis website:
If you're a postgraduate pre-registration healthcare student: You are eligible to apply for a second undergraduate loan instead of the Master's loan if you are enrolled on one of the qualifying courses. You'll repay both your loans at a consolidated rate of 9% above the income threshold.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated as my mind is blown haha

I would call the student loan people to ask as I thought you would only be entitled to the £5,000 per yr master’s loan
You would I think also qualify for the £5,000 grant the government are giving.
I may be wrong , it’s all confusing

Just had a look and you are right, looks like you can do it with student loan funding.
I would like to think you get the £5000 grant too

No I’m not a current nurse, but a complex health assistant so work with tracheostomy’s, pegs and administer medication, oxygen etc.

Thanks, if you do find out it may make me reconsider MSc as a mature student would need full financing

I’m now wondering if I should apply for that next year instead of Bsc as I went for bsc as I could not afford the masters, if it’s the same it’s not worth me doing bsc

I was in a similar situation, I had a place on a masters nursing course but the masters funding just didn’t leave enough to live on after paying fees so I applied and got accepted to do the undergrad instead. It’s a year longer but so much better funded and also leaves the masters funding for me to use if I ever want to do a masters in a health field to further my nursing career in the future.

But if you could have got the same funding as undergraduate would you have gone for MSc?

How old are you, now, Goldenstar?

There are some conditions which are a bar, but if you don't have one of those, you might be able to join the Reserves.

I’m 26. I’m not sure then, I know mine is a new course to our university. And things have recently changed after the bursary was scrapped. If you are really unsure I’d suggest calling finance England.
