BSc Nursing & Midwifery, with registration

If you are thinking about studying a pre-registration Nursing or Midwifery course at UWS, it is important that you understand that the funding rules for these courses are very different from other undergraduate course.

Students from Scotland

If you are ordinarily resident in Scotland, you are eligible to receive funding through the Nursing and Midwifery student bursary scheme (NMSB) which comes from the Scottish Government Health Directorate but is administered by SAAS.

The Nursing and Midwifery student bursary scheme (NMSB) consists of a non-repayable bursary that is not income assessed and a number of additional bursaries/grants that are dependent on your circumstances.

There are no tuition fees for Scottish students studying pre-registration Nursing and Midwifery. This is because the University is funded by the government to produce a registered nurse or midwife. If you have been offered a place on the course, you should consider this to be a funded place in relation to tuition

The SAAS website details the financial support available and how you can apply.

  • Standard Nursing and Midwifery students bursary: £6,578 per year.
  • Single parents allowance: £2,303 per year.
  • Childcare allowance for registered care: up to £2,466 per year (less only if the registered childcare amounts to less)
  • Dependents allowance: £3,640 for first dependent child* and £557 for each other dependent child

*Students with a spouse or partner on very low incomes may claim this allowance for that spouse or partner instead of a dependent child, and a further £557 for each dependent child.

Students from England, Wales or Northern Ireland

If you are ordinarily resident in England, Wales or Northern Ireland, tuition fees for this course are £9,250.

You should be eligible to receive funding from the relevant national funding body to support you in meeting this cost, as well as living costs.

For more information on national funding bodies, please see undergraduate funding for English, Welsh and Northern Irish students.

 The type of course you are on can affect eligibility for additional sources of funding, so please ensure you read eligibility criteria carefully.

Students from the EU

If you are ordinarily resident in an EU country, there are no tuition fees for this course.

This is because the University is funded by the government to produce a registered nurse or midwife. If you have been offered a place on the course, you should consider this to be a funded place in relation to tuition.

You cannot claim any support through the Scottish Government for living costs, so it is vitally important you consider how you will support yourself during your studies.

Please visit our Money Advice pages for information on how you can make your money go further. 

International students

If you are ordinarily resident in a non-EEA country, you will be subject to tuition fees if you choose to study one of these courses.

You should consult the UWS Finance Department to find out how much this is and how you can pay.

Already registered with the NMC?

We understand that already registered Adult/Mental Health nurses may want the opportunity to obtain an MSc.

If you are already registered, you may be unable to apply for funding. We recommend you carefully consider how you will meet your cost of living during your studies and plan accordingly for this.

You may also wish to research charitable funding options, or other more unique funding routes. You can find further information in Additional Financial Support.

There is no guarantee that a source of funding will exist for you and we would recommend you start this research as early as possible. 

You will also not be eligible for the SAAS Postgraduate Funding Scheme.
