    If you get the diploma you can't get loans on top of that. You could apply for hard ship funds at the uni you go to. You'll be getting well over £500 a month, you should be fine!

    I have been offered a place on adult nursing diploma and will have to travel from stoke to stafford every day. Is there any travelling cost allowance and also what is a typical week like in the first year. For example is is Mon to Fri 9-5 or are there shifts in the first year. Do you have to travel to campus every day?

    I'm afraid only those recieving a means tested bursary get travelling costs incurred, and thats only for plascement. Can't you find accomodation near by?

    You don't get an allowance, but you can claim back travel costs. I know for sure that at my uni, people on degree and diploma were both eligible to claim back all travel and parking costs.

    Hiya. I am trying to reply to an unconditional offer I have received from Staffs for the adult nursing diploma. UCAS does not seem to appear to recognise the March start date on their system as I am unable to reply through them yet and the course starts on March 22nd? Can anyone help and let me know about deadlines. How much time do I have to reply?
