Nursing Students Funding

All nursing and midwifery students and many allied health students on degree courses from September 2020 will receive a payment of at least £5,000 a year, which they will not need to pay back. It is expected to benefit more than 35,000 students every year.

Students will receive at least £5,000 a year, with up to £3,000 further funding available for eligible students, including for:

  • specialist disciplines that struggle to recruit, including mental health
  • an additional childcare allowance, on top of the £1,000 already on offer
  • areas of the country which have seen a decrease in people accepted on some nursing, midwifery and allied health courses over the past year
