From September 2020, nursing, midwifery, operating department practice (ODP) and paramedic science students will receive funding of £5,000 a year to help with living costs.
Some students may be eligible for more, and this money does not have to be repaid.
You will still be able to access other financial support, such as the Tuition Fee Loan. This new grant will be available to existing students as well as those starting a course in 2020.
As this is a new grant, we don't have full information yet – but here are the details that have been released so far.
We'll update this information as more details become available.
