Second degree students
In this section
Students studying for a second degree students aren't normally able to get student finance.
There are some graduate entry courses where funding is available. These are:
- Medicine, dentistry and other allied NHS-funded courses
- Social work
- Initial teacher training (PGCE and SCITT routes only)
Second-degree students may also be charged higher tuition fees by their university than first-degree students. That's because undertaking a second degree is usually classed as studying for an Equivalent Level Qualification (ELQ). This means the qualification you get at the end of the degree will be equivalent to one you already have.
For further information on the financial cost of undertaking a second degree you need to contact the university or college for details.
