NHS bursary?? (From England to Scotland)

Hello!!
I’m going to be applying to Uni(s) in September. I was reading through the scholarships and bursary
page when I noticed that the uni (which is in Scotland) and the NHS say two different things. (I’m planning on going into Adult nursing)

The uni states I’ll have to apply for the bursary in England before I go to uni but the NHS state I need to apply through the university. Anyone know how this actually works or do you think I should contact admissions about it?

It is my understanding that the Paramedic, Nursing and Midwifery Student Bursary (PNMSB) is only available by applying through SAAS. You won't be able to apply to SAAS as you normally live in England - you will need to apply to SFE for your student finance. If you study a nursing course in England and are eligible for student finance, then you can also apply to the NHS Learning Support Fund (NHS LSF) for the annual training grant and other benefits. You won't be able to apply to the NHS LSF if you study in Scotland (or Wales or NI). Usually, it doesn't make financial sense for English students to study healthcare courses outside of England.

NB Some unis have their own scholarship and bursary schemes, which are administered by the uni.
