    I probably already know the answer, but may as well ask!

    I will just be finishing a 3 year degree where I received a previous loan from student finance for my tuition fees, maintenance loan, grant etc as income assessed. I will be starting a 5 year undergraduate medicine course in September (grades pending), what am I eligible to receive from student finance throughout the 5 years?

    Also, when I make the application - do I need to make a new account, or do I use my old one?

    Hi Waterstorm,

    You should apply as a new student again but using the same customer reference number and login details.

    Students studying a standard undergraduate medical or dental course as a second degree are only eligible to apply for:

    · Maintenance Loan from SFE, in years one to four
    · A reduced-rate Maintenance Loan from SFE in year five or any further years
    · In year five onwards a bursary, and a grant from the NHS

    Hope this helps,
    Mark-Lee

    Thanks, one final thing - will the loan be income assessed? On the form it's asking for my parents income details, and it doesn't seem to let me proceed without providing it.
