The Health Education Funding Reforms consultation resulted in changes to how some healthcare courses will be funded from 1 August 2017.
Students starting a new Nursing, Midwifery or Allied Health Professional course on or after 1 August 2017 may be eligible to apply for financial support from the Learning Support Fund (LSF).
This offers support for:
- students with at least one dependent child (Child Dependants Allowance)
- practice placement travel and/or temporary accommodation costs (Travel and Dual Accommodation Expenses)
- students experiencing financial hardship (Exceptional Support Fund)
If you started a course prior to 1 August 2017 but have changed your study pattern and are returning to a different programme, study year or any other form of variation to study, you'll need to check with your university on your funding support entitlement.
