Nursing and midwifery students - support: 2019 to 2020


This booklet provides information for students on pre-registration Nursing and Midwifery courses in Scotland. 

It describes the Nursing and Midwifery Student Bursary (NMSB) Scheme in Scotland, who is eligible for it, what it is (including current rates) and how you can apply for it. This booklet is for guidance only. It cannot cover all individual circumstances. The scheme is administered by the Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS).

If you are a new Scottish student enrolling to study nursing or midwifery in England, Wales or Northern Ireland you are not eligible for this package. You should apply for the general undergraduate package on the SAAS website.

If you are from England, Wales or Northern Ireland, you are not eligible to apply for this package. You should apply to the funding body in your home country for support.
