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."

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
