From my understanding there is no longer any NHS funding for dental hygiene and therapy only for nursing, radiography, radiotherapy speech and language therapy, physio, OT, podiatry, midwifery and paramedic science. But double check yourself but I definitely saw something about dental hygiene and therapy no longer being funded and you’d have to pay the 9k tuition fees like non healthcare degrees

Thanks, you are right on that one, but I meant the Learning Support Fund promised early this year. Spoke to the NHS LSF and I’m waiting for them to get back to me with an update.

Hi,.

Well done👍👍👍!
I did make an account but my university is missing from the list somehow!!!
So I’m waiting for them to clarify the situation.
I got stuck after I registered and wanted to apply: the drop-down list has only a few universities, Queen Mary University of London = not included!!

I saw that the dental therapy course is funded for level 5 or 6 courses only. Does that mean you only get the the funding in second and third year?

Does anyone know if the LSF is available to all dental hygiene/therapy and oral health science courses? I’m planning ahead as I’m applying for 2021 intake but need to know if any unis don’t qualify. I’m looking at Leeds, teeside, Newcastle, Essex and Bristol. 😊

Hiya
I'm starting the Orla Health Science course in Essex and when I rang the NHS funding people they said I wouldn't qualify, as the course isn't explicitly Dental Hygiene.. but when I used your link, it comes up as 'Dental Hygiene' for Essex uni. I wanted to ask, if I have to wait till I start the course to apply? There was a declaration that states I agree I have begun my studies. Hope that makes sense

Hello, sorry, what student finance letter? I thought this was separate to student finance?
