A £5,000 grant for student nurses will support hundreds of individuals across the UK to achieve their career goals – and Bury College is proud to deliver the high-quality courses to help you get there.

From September 2020, individuals from across England will receive a payment of at least £5,000 which will support nursing students and help them with their living costs. The grant will be awarded to new and continuing degree-level nurses, midwives and other allied health students.

In addition to the £5,000 a year grant, student nurses any also be eligible for up to £3,000 further funding. Individuals who study specialist disciplines that are struggling to recruit, including mental health, could therefore receive up to £8,000 per year which does not need to be paid back.

Bury College is proud to offer a range of career-based courses which have helped many individuals to achieve their career goal of university-based nurse training. Our high quality course options include both the BTEC Health and Social Care to Health and the Multi-Professional Cadet Scheme.

For Adult learners who may be interested in returning to education, the Access programmes at Bury College can lead individuals onto the pathway of nursing. For many years, students have completed the Access to Higher Education Diploma (Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professions Diploma), successfully progressing to university studies and embarking on a career in Nursing and other health professions.
