Annual nursing payments

A new range of financial support has been announced for all undergraduate and postgraduate student nurses.

What is it?

From August 2020, new annual payments of £5,000 - £8,000 will be available to help undergraduate and postgraduate student nurses fund their studies. Best of all, they won’t need to be repaid.

Am I eligible?

Every student nurse studying or starting their course in August 2020 (so this includes students in years 2 and 3) will receive at least £5,000.

Further support worth up to £3,000 will be available for those studying specialist disciplines, like mental health. Students in areas of the country that have had low take-up rates for nursing courses will also be eligible for this extra support. Along with this, further childcare allowance will also be available.

This means that some students may be eligible for up to £8,000 of financial support for each year of study.

How do I find out more?

Full details on the funding arrangements will be available in early 2020. Keep an eye on our financial support at university page for information as it becomes available.
