Nursing and Midwifery Students

Nursing and Midwifery Students



Students taking degree courses in nursing or midwifery that start on or after September 2017 can apply to Student Finance England for Tuition Fee Loans, Maintenance Loans and Grants for Dependants. See "Full-time Undergraduate Financial Support" page on this website. Previous study at Higher Education level will not be a barrier to funding for these students.

Some miscellaneous financial support may be available from NHS Student Bursaries Learner Support Fund for eligible students including Child Dependants Allowance, Travel and Dual Accommodation Allowance and Exceptional Support Fund. More details available at

Eligible nursing and midwifery students may also apply to the University’s Access to Learning Fund for financial support after they have started the course.

There are a number of educational trust funds that help healthcare students in financial difficulty and many of our students have received grants in excess of £1,000. A list of some of the trust funds that may help nursing students and an example of a letter asking for help from trust funds or charities can be found on our Trust Fund Page on this website.


Nursing Students on Secondment

Seconded NHS students can apply to Student Finance England (SFE) for student Maintenance Loans and Grants and will be asked by the SFE to supply a letter from their employer confirming seconded status. Unlike most financial assessments for student finance, SFE will include the student’s earnings in their calculations.


Nursing Students whose course started on or before 31 July 2017

Students taking degree courses in nursing or midwifery, and whose course started on or before 31 July 2017 can still apply for an NHS BURSARY.
