Funding victory for second degree Paramedics
Do you study Paramedic Science but you already have a degree?
If so, then it is likely that you are not receiving any funding from Student Finance England, but there is some good news, thanks to a campaign by the member association College of Paramedics
New and continuing students studying Paramedicine can now be paid the £5000 per year Training Grant which is part of the NHSBSA Learning Support Fund even though you may not be eligible for any funding from Student Finance England because of your previous study.
The Training Grant does not have to be paid back.
As this is a new decision we want to make sure you’re all aware as you have to apply within 6 months of the start of the course to receive this award.
Eligibility will be determined on a case-by-case basis and paramedic students can apply for this now the academic year has started.
You need to apply online through the NHSBHA
