Funding from the Student Loans Company
From August 2018 new postgraduate pre-registration nursing and allied health professional students are able to access loans from the Student Loan Company.
Courses which are eligible include:
Students studying a pre-registration, postgraduate healthcare course which starts after 1 August 2018 can apply for the same package of support as undergraduate students. In other words, these students will be able to access loans to cover tuition fees of up to £9,250 per year (our course fee per year) and to support living costs.
Please note there will be eligibility criteria which must be met to receive this financial support. Students who are already registered in nursing, midwifery, or an allied health profession will not be eligible for support for a second full-time or part-time pre-registration course, or a second full-time postgraduate pre-registration course leading to registration in the same profession.
Like undergraduates, postgraduate pre-registration students will be eligible for additional support through the Learning Support Fund administered through the NHS Business Services Authority including:
- Child Dependants Allowance
- exceptional hardship support
- additional travel and accommodation expenses
Disabled Students Allowance
Students who are obliged to incur essential additional expenditure while undertaking a course of higher education as a result of a disability may qualify for disabled students' allowances.
