Reply To: Bursaries


My daughter has just trained as a nurse. She got a bursary and student loan (she was not doing diploma course). However, she also did extra shifts when she could to earn some extra money, but this wasn’t very often because mainly she did 37 hours a week training. She would do extra shifts in her holidays or if she was desperate for money, she would work on her day off. Quite often I find NHS students say they “work” when in fact this is their training and they are not paid for this. I’ve even had a claimant who was training and was getting WTC because she told the HMRC that she was working.
