HC Deb 05 February 1998 vol 305 c735W
Mr. Welsh

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what financial assistance will be available to those nursing, midwifery and the professions allied to medicine students who are unsuccessful in applying for maintenance bursaries. [26560]

Mr. Galbraith

[holding answer 30 January 1998]: All students gaining a place on a diploma level nursing or midwifery course in Scotland will have access to non means-tested bursaries. Scottish domiciled students undertaking full-time degree courses leading to qualifications in nursing and midwifery, and those undertaking courses in the professions allied to medicine will have access to means-tested bursaries. Those who do not secure a bursary will be assisted on the same terms as other entrants to full-time higher education from academic year 1998–99 onwards.
