Now
Tuition fees: £27,000
Bursary: Basic allowance: £5000
Means assessed up to £3000
Maintenance grant to make up shortfall: £3000-£5000

Total after 3 years:
Loans owed: £27k + £9-15K
Total debt: up to £42,000
Just to be clear:
The Tories made nurses pay tuition fees in 2017, and THEY STILL ARE. That’s £27K.

The proposed bursary is ~40% LOWER than it was pre-2017.
It would be more accurate to say:

The Tories will continue to charge tuition fees and will partially subsidise maintenance loans for nurses.

Nurse training debt will remain up to £42,000 HIGHER than in 2016.
