Financial help from Middlesex
Most UK/EU students can get loans to cover their fees and depending on your family’s income you might be entitled to more help from the government in the form of loans or grants. International students may also be able to access financial support from their government.
We recognise that this help is not enough for some students and we do not want anyone to be discouraged from studying with us because of their financial situation.
In this section you will find details of:
The National Scholarship Programme (NSP) is a government programme which offers students from lower income families (less than £25k a year) additional financial support.
In 2013 Middlesex will be offering 420 scholarships of up to £9,000 spread over three years (£3,000 per year of study). Each year £2,000 of this will be given as a fee waiver, with the remaining £1,000 given as a cash award.
You can find out more on our NSP information page.
Please note that any applicants for nursing and midwifery courses are not eligible for the National Scholarship Programme as they will receive their funding from the NHS.

Students are invited to use MoDA’s collections for research and inspiration in the development of any piece of studio work under the guidance of their tutors. (The work should be submitted for assessment in the normal way).
Application for the award is by submission of three A3 sheets which clearly demonstrate: the design brief or initial conception of the project; the development of the project; details of the final piece of work. Applications should demonstrate how the final piece was inspired by/developed from something in the museum’s collections and should show critical reflection on the research process.

Created in 2013, this new award is available to third year nursing students. This year, two students will receive a £150 award at the end of the academic year.
Application for the award is by submission of an essay about the care of patients with either sickle cell or thalassaemia. Both conditions require life-long care, however nurses often learn very little about either. Essays should be between 750 – 1000 words and demonstrate research into these problems, which are very common in the local community.
Jacqueline is affected by sickle cell and has had care from the Whittington Hospital for many years and has always had an interest in improving the quality of nursing care. The prize is intended to help with this by increasing students’ understanding of the issues and encouraging them to voluntarily learn more about this important area of medical care.
Essays should be between 750 – 1000 words long and submitted by 19th July 2013 to be judged by the Prize donor, along with his colleagues. The winning students will be notified in late August and invited to the Scholarships & Awards ceremony which takes place on Thursday 14th November 2013
