Sheffield Hallam is the second largest trainer of nursing and midwifery students in the UK, after recently signing a contract to train all pre-registration nursing and midwifery students in South Yorkshire, at both degree and advanced diploma level.
The increase will mean that students eligible for the non means tested NHS bursary could receive up to £7030 per year, plus other allowances depending on their circumstances. These students also have their tuition fees paid in full by the NHS.
Professor Linda Lang, Acting Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Health and Wellbeing at Sheffield said, "The bursaries for health care students play an essential role in allowing as many young people as possible to fulfil their ambitions to work in the NHS. For many students they make the difference between being able to continue with their education and having to get a job.
"The intensive nature of these courses means that students need this support during their studies and the extra financial support, alongside the fact that these students have their tuition fees paid by the NHS, means that we continue to benefit from having the best and brightest students applying to nursing, midwifery and allied health professional courses.
"The ageing profile of nurses and other health professionals means that we will increasingly rely on the new intake of professionals in the future, and offering the right financial support is essential in attracting them into the profession."

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).
Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
