Nursing students to receive £5,000 payment a year
9th January 2020
All nursing students on courses from September 2020 will receive a payment of at least £5,000 a year which they will not need to pay back.
Nursing students will benefit from guaranteed, additional support of at least £5,000 a year to help with living costs.
The funding will be given to all new and continuing degree-level nursing, midwifery and many allied health students from September 2020. It is expected to benefit more than 35,000 students every year.
The announcement of the funding comes ahead of the UCAS university application deadline of 15 January.
A list of AHPs to benefit from this will be announced soon.
