new £5000 annual grant is unfair to students currently on NHS degree courses
3 replies 97 views
My daughter started her occupational therapy degree course in Sep 2017 and is due to finish in July 2020. 2017 was the first year where the NHS no longer paid the tuition fees. The government has announced that in Sep 2020, students studying for NHS degrees eg nurses, occupational therapists etc will be given an annual grant of £5000 ie they do not have to pay this back. This means my daughter will also miss out on the £15000 grant (£5000 for each year). This seems grossly unfair. Does anyone know if any provisions have been made for those affected students like my daughter? Advice on how/who to complain to would be welcome.
