Fees from 2017
Following changes to funding from 1 August 2017, there are no upfront fees to pay for degree courses in Adult Nursing, Child Nursing and Mental Health Nursing, Midwifery and Social work. A student loan is available to cover the University tuition costs of £9,250, which you will only repay once you begin employment earning over £21,000. For more information, you can visit the Funding clinic site for the latest news.
Don't worry - some quick facts:
- Limited bursaries are available; see the funding pages for more details.
- Repayment on £21,500 is currently £5.25 a month (or the price of a sandwich and a coffee)
- If you aren't working you won't pay. If you take time out to have a family, you won't pay.
- If it isn't repaid within 30 years, the outstanding amount is written off

Under the loans system, students on nursing, midwifery and allied health courses will typically receive around 25% more in the financial resources available to them for living costs than at present. The precise change for individuals will depend on their circumstances for example, where they study, the length of the course, income and residency
For healthcare students, if you are an eligible UK or EU student, whether full-time or part-time, you'll be able to get a loan from the government to cover the full amount of your tuition fees. The University has information on the support available.
