Hiya,

You should be able to apply for a Career Development Loan but unfortunately you will not be entitled to any UK funding such as bursaries or grants. I'm also going out to Australia next month to study a nursing degree and have recently applied for a CDL - it's taken a long time to arrange but I've finally had the loan approved. Basically you can borrow between £300 & £8,000 (I think) and the british government pay the interest while you study and then you start to pay it back about a month after your course ends. I've looked into getting financial help loads but even though Australia seem pretty short on nursing staff they haven't reached the point of sponsoring international students.
Where are you going to be doing your course?

If you want any more info then just ask

Good Luck

The only drawback is that you're supposed to "intend to return to the UK or EU to work after the course has finished". I'm not sure what happens if you intend to do that and you end up staying in Oz. I'll cross that bridge if and when it happens.
