Nursing, midwifery and AHP students spend a large portion of their courses on placements, which means that students have additional travel and accommodation expenses.
Eligible students will be able to apply for reimbursement of essential expenses incurred, over and above their normal daily travel costs, as a result of attending practice placements. The expenses will be payable to eligible students for a full academic year for eligible programmes that commenced between 1 August 2017 and 31 July 2018, provided that a valid claim is made within nine months of the cost being incurred.
Please note that as BSc Physiotherapy is a new programme (subject to checking), students on this course are not eligible for travel and placement accomodation support.
The government will publish the arrangements for 2018/19 onwards in due course.
