At UCLan, we understand that entering into Higher Education can seem like a costly and daunting business for students and their families.

We look forward to seeing many of you studying and enjoying life at UCLan in the near future.
If you started a nursing, midwifery or allied health professional course after 1 August 2017, you will need to apply to the Student Loans Company for your tuition fees and maintenance loan, as you are no longer entitled to an NHS bursary.
You may also qualify for some additional financial support through the Learning Support Fund such as:
• Child Dependants Allowance - a grant of £1000 for eligible students who have parental responsibility for a dependent child
• Travel and Dual Accommodation Expenses - for reimbursement for some of the additional cost of attending a practice placement as part of your course
• Exceptional Support fund – a grant of up to £3000 per academic year to students who can show that they have a shortfall between their income and expenditure which they are unable to manage by their own actions
Unfortunately, students on Degree Apprenticeship courses are not eligible for any mainstream financial support through their funding bodies. They are also not eligible to apply for additional financial support through the university.
The information given in this website provides general information and guidance. If you have any specific questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Student Financial Support Team.
