Event: NHS Learning Support Fund student bitesize sessions
The NHS are running a series of virtual 30 minute sessions looking at each of the funding elements of the NHS Learning Support Fund.
The NHS Learning Support Fund is the extra funding available to students on a wide variety of health care courses, including nursing, midwifery, dental therapy or dental hygiene, occupational therapy, paramedics, speech and language therapy and many more.
If you’re eligible, you can get:
- a Training Grant of £5,000 per academic year
- Parental Support of £2,000, if you have at least one dependent child under 15 years, or under 17 years if registered with special educational needs
- reimbursement of excess costs incurred on practice placement for travel and temporary accommodation costs (Travel and Dual Accommodation Expenses)
- students experiencing financial hardship (Exceptional Support Fund)
The virtual sessions will provide you information on what the LSF can provide and how to apply for it.
