Since 1 August 2017, new students in England on most pre-registration courses (courses which lead on to registration with one of the health professional regulators) for nursing, midwifery and most allied health professions have had access to the standard student support package of tuition fee loans and support for living costs, rather than getting an NHS grant.

Following the announcement of the changes in November 2015 thousands of people have accessed the information we’ve put together. We know that this kind of major change raises many questions, so we’ve pooled all the information we have on one site. The aim is to signpost you to as many sources of information as we can. We’re learning as we do this, so give us your feedback via @councilofdeans
