Hello,

As someone who has already had an interest in people and being able to help/support them. I made the decision to pursue a career in psychology, leading to me gaining a 2:1 degree in psychology in 2020.

Following my graduation, I landed myself a job as a mental health support worker on a specialised EUPD unit delivering a DBT programme. Throughout this experience, my next step was gaining an assistant psychologist post to pursue my goal.

In September 2021 I managed to bag myself an assistant psychologist role which I’m currently in. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoy the job I’m in and I’m so grateful that I’ve got it. However, I’ve come to realise how much I enjoyed being involved in the ward dynamic and having closer involvement with the patients I work with.

Therefore, I’m really interested in doing a MSc in mental health nursing at Manchester metropolitan university (same university I did my bachelors degree at). I’ve received 3 years student finance funding for my bachelors degree but the masters will be two years long.

Would I be able to get the two years masters funded?

Good Morning,

As long as you are not already registered in the Mental Health Nursing field then you would be eligible to apply for funding as it's considered an exceptions course.

Warm Regards,

Shaun.
