    what if I want to study for a second degree. Is there funding

    If you're talking about a second undergraduate degree then there is very little funding. They fall under the EPQ rules, which broadly are that there is no access to further student support (maintenance or tuition fee loans) if you take a second course at a level equivalent or less to that which you already hold. There are a few exceptions: medicine, architecture etc but by and large you're on your own and need to be in a position to pay the fees yourself up front, which at £30K is not possible for the vast majority of students

    Depends. Which course?

    Generally yes if it's part-time and a STEM course. Otherwise generally no.

    Edit to add: ah, I didn't initially notice the forum, for healthcare see the link from the poster below

    This states that if you are studying for a second degree in nursing, midwifery or another allied health health profession, you many be eligible for a second loan from SLC.I hope this is true as I want to undertake a second degree in Occupational Therapy and can't afford to without a loan now the bursaries have been scrapped.
