Returning students

If you're returning to a non-medical or dental healthcare course in 2020/21 after a period of absence, and you were previously in receipt of a NHS Bursary, you should check with your university to see if you're still eligible for NHS Bursary funding on your return, or whether you should apply via the Student Loans Company for tuition fee and maintenance loans.
