Hi all. I'm 26 yo with a 1 year old little boy. I'm looking into going back to study (1st degree was in fashion journalism, but decided it wasn't for me!)
I'm looking at doing child nursing and I know that tuition fees are paid for, but does anyone know if I'm entitled to any other bursaries or grants as I know normally you're not if it's a second degree. I wasn't sure if it was different if you were studying in the medical/healthcare sector. I know if it's your first degree you get a childcare grant, but I'm unsure if you get this if it's my second degree.
If anyone has any experience in this, I would be really grateful for any info you can give me. I should also add that I'm not a single parent, but my partner is on a low income.

I'm doing physio after doing a previous degree and I'm entitled to extra money from the student loans company that I will eventually have to pay back. I also get the max nhs bursary which is over 5000 a year plus they pay your fees. Also one of the girls on the course is about to have a baby and she will be able to get extra money for childcare and this is her second degree and her husband works also.
Hope that helps
