Since 2017 there have been significant changes to the way 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 in England are funded and the financial support for students. New students have had access to the standard student support package of tuition fee loans and support for living costs and from August 2018 new postgraduate pre-registration nursing, midwifery and allied health professional students will also access loans.

Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland continue to have their own systems which we explain in the section on studying in the other home nations.

Clear information is vital for anybody considering studying one of these courses so we’ve pooled all the information we have on one site and signposted to other sources of information where relevant.
