We have 2 types of claims from NHS students:

1 They just receive a bursary from the Health Service but part of their sudies is to actually work in the local hospital to learn how to be a nurse.

2 They receive a bursary from the Health Service as (1) but in addition also do extra work for the local healthcare trust on a nursing bank. They are paid extra for this work.

I am happy that the extra work should be classed as earned income – but not sure about the bursary that both types of student receive. They are working 16+ hours per week – but I don’t think that it can be classed as remunerative work.
