    I'm really confused about the NHS bursary form, I live with my parents and am still a full time student, unemployed and do not have an income of my own, i originally entered my parents tax details in the student's income and expenses page as it said earlier on the form that as i am dependent i should enter the details of my parent's, however ive just reached the part of the form that asks for the "person 1 income assessed contribution" and i have no idea what I am supposed to do, should i just enter £0.00 into all the boxes for the student income and just fill out the person 1 details? Especially since it won't let me leave the page until i complete the form. I have no idea, help!!!!

    Yes, the student part is for your details, person 1 is your parents.

    Thank you, so does that mean that my income and expenses is £0 because I am unemployed and living off my parents?

    RaePanda247 yeah, so the first bit you came across where you filled in your parents info should be your income information, so put £0.00 for that. Then the person 1 contribution is one of your parents (the one you live with if they are separated). If they are together, then another page will come up for person 2, so your 2nd parent's income. Hope that makes sense!

    Im a bit confused with the NHS bursary myself. My dad went into early retirement so gets a pension but he also works part time. Does anyone know if the pension would count as an allowable expense?

    Also, if I apply for means tested and im not able to get the bursary, does that mean I will automatically be considered for the non-means tested bursary of £1,000? And will that also mean I would not be allowed the additional weeks allowance even though I initially applied for the means tested?

    Hi RaePanda247,

    Did you sort this at all? I am in a similar quandary now although it is a slightly different situation as I live away from home. I am applying as a dependent as I have only been working for 2 years since graduating from my first degree and do not fit any of the other criteria. I spoke to someone at NHS bursaries today she told me not to enter my personal expenses as I am applying as a dependent and this would only mean having to provide unnecessary evidence. Did you end up just putting £0 in all the boxes? It doesn't feel right as I do earn and pay rent/bills lol! xxx

    Hi, I just had a quick question - my mum earns less than 15k a year and I live only with her - no second parent. I won't have a job during my studies or anything and my mum can't afford to give me a penny. Would I be entitled to the full bursary? How much is the full bursary? I'm so upset I keep thinking I'm not goings to be able to afford to do this !!
