Find out more
Hi, I wonder if anyone could give me an idea of what financial support I am entitled to? I got my offer to study childrens nursing starting April 2021. I have received a letter from student finance stating I can get a tuition loan plus a maintenance loan of £9000 . I'm just wondering what else I am able to get, I did read about an nhs bursary but I'm not sure. I am a single parent to 3 with the youngest aged 3 and oldest aged 11 so would I be able to continue getting universal credit? Sorry for long post I'm just trying to work out whats best, as I'm currently working in a care home and wondering whether to leave completely in April or if I need to stay on bank to top up my income. Thanks in advance for your help.
In regards to universal credit, I cannot confirm for sure, but the gov website says you MAY be entitled, but the maintenance loan will have some impact on the amount You're best asking them more directly for the specifics of your situation. I believe grants or bursaries are excluded in the working out of universal credit, but I'd say always check the source directly to be 100% sure
Best of luck with your degree
