Your Students' Union were recently involved in the lobbying process at a Government level to provide more funding for Paramedic Science students in Scotland. We are pleased to announce that the paramedic students have been successful in their campaign to have a bursary that is equal to nursing and midwifery students.
Last week, the Scottish Government announced the Paramedic, Nursing and Midwifery Student Bursary (PNMSB) equating to £10,000 annually for each student eligible, starting from the 2021/2022 academic year. Scottish-domiciled undergraduate Paramedic Science students who have already applied to the Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS) will have their applications automatically changed by SAAS to receive the new bursary for the upcoming year. For more information, please visit www.saas.gov.uk
This is an incredible achievement for these students and one that helps to reach our goal of making students' lives better. Well done to all those involved, especially our students who helped campaign and lobby for this change!
