NHS LSF Fund

The Health Education Funding Reforms consultation resulted in significant changes to how some healthcare courses are funded.

If you are accepted onto a degree course starting after September 2017 that leads onto professional registration in a health-related career such as nursing, midwifery or nutrition and dietetics, you will need to apply for a tuition fee loan and maintenance loan to cover the costs of your learning. Further details can be found on the GOV.UK student finance website.

The NHS Learning Support Fund can provide limited financial assistance to certain students, more details will be available on the NHS Business Services Authority website.
