Fees and funding
Students studying on nursing, midwifery or allied health professional courses funded by Health Education England, who start from September 2017 will have access to the same student loans support package and support for living costs as other students. The new arrangements also apply to students planning to take these courses as a second qualification.
The NHS will no longer grant bursaries. There will be, however, additional funding by the NHS Business Services Authority for some nursing, midwifery and allied health professional students because of the compulsory clinical placement required by these courses. This funding will cover students with child dependants and severe hardship. It will also cover travel and accommodation expenses incurred over and above the daily travel costs to university and for those who need dual accommodation.
