Scottish Green Party

Date lodged: 30 June 2016

To ask the Scottish Government on what date its review of student support available to nursing and midwifery students will (a) conclude and (b) report to ministers.

Answered by: Shona Robison 21 July 2016

The Scottish Government has committed to retain the non-means tested, non-repayable nursing and midwifery student bursary at least at its current level. The review will now focus on what additional support students might need to enable wider participation and increased retention. The review findings will now be presented to Scottish Ministers by the end of 2016.
