"All students, irrespective of circumstances, will be eligible for a student loan of £4,500 a year", "Allied Health Profession students...will be brought into the new simplified student support package from 2013-14."

I am in the same position as you, already completed a degree and have a place on an AHP course. The first person from SAAS told me over the phone that I wouldn't qualify for anything as "all loans will be income assessed from next year". Not too sure about that. So I phoned again and spoke to a guy who said that I would receive a non-income assessed loan of £4500 for each year of study, REGARDLESS of whether SAAS were paying my tuition fees for that year or not. I will receive this amount despite: having had funding for my previous degree, living at home with parents, and having a parental income of over £70k per annum.

If this is the case then I will be saving money from these loan payments every month to pay for my tuition in year 3 and 4.

It still seems to good to be true so I would give them another phone and tell them what I've said here. I also don't know what the repayment schedule is like once you graduate so you might want to ask about that as well. Good luck!
