Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Grant

If you are interested in studying a degree-level Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health course, you may be eligible for a government grant of at least £5,000 a year to help with living costs, which you will not need to pay back.

As part of the new government scheme to increase nursing numbers by 50,000 in the next five years, new and continuing degree students on these courses from September 2020 will be entitled to this grant.

Students will be eligible to benefit from at least £5,000 a year with an additional £3,000 for specific courses and circumstances, such as specialist courses needing further recruitment, additional childcare allowance and students from areas where course acceptance has been low over the last year.

This funding will not have to be paid back and students will also be able to continue to access funding for tuition and maintenance loans from the Student Loans Company. Read more on the Government’s website.

Like every course we offer, tuition fees are a key matter for all students. We believe it is important you are familiar with how to pay and what support may be available to you. For Information on how to apply for a student tuition and maintenance loan please follow the relevant links on the Government’s website.

Additional fees and funding help can be found on our dedicated section online or additionally you’ll find details of course fees, programme specifications and additional costs on our individual course pages for UK, EU and international students.

If you are a prospective student, you may be eligible for a scholarship or bursary. If you are a current student and need any financial help or advice please contact the Students’ Union Advice Centre.
