you can do a hundred masters if you want. But it'll be one hell of an education section on your CV.
Say, can you stop saying say?

You can do as many Masters degrees as you can afford (there's no funding like Student Finance). You just need to meet the entry criteria and stump up the cash.

Yes, also for social work and postgrad teacher training. But as I said, there isn't an equivalent of Student Finance which would provide funding regardless of subject. Overall, very few Masters degrees are funded.

Some universities have a double degree option.

I know Exeter do for the majority of their business courses. Allowing you to do your initial masters domestically with Exeter and then moving onto further study at a partner university in China, Belgium, France or Germany depending on your course to obtain another masters. They also offer a few scholarship which fund all of this.

Also no matter how many masters you do I would highly recommend applying for scholarships, bursaries and sponsorships. I studied a completely different course to what my masters is in yet have gained a external bursary of £500 as well as two 50% scholarships from two solid universities.

Are STPS and doing the masters the same thing?

As you complete an NHS Scientist Training Programme with either a specialist diploma or MSc, then yes, it can be.

Say I did masters with clinical practice ain't that the same as stp or r they different

The STP is a separate NHS graduate training scheme. You will only get an STP qualification or STP funding if you're on the STP to begin with.

Full details on the NHS STP here:

Speech & language therapy aren't covered. It's a heavily scientific medical scheme, aimed at producing research clinicians/scientists.

If you check the list of STP specialisms, this isn't covered by that scheme. According to the UCL MSc Speech and Language Sciences, that course is 2 years full-time and NHS funded, indicating that an equivalent course elsewhere probably would be as well.

http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/graduate/degrees/taught/tmsspeslan01

However the entry requirements indicate that it's aimed at people with "extensive work experience" in the field.

You could do a second undergrad degree in speech therapy. If you do an accredited degree, your tuition fees will be paid by the NHS and you'll get a £1000 a year NHS bursary and a means-tested bursary of up to £4395 per year

Actually you can get student finance for one masters like you can for one undergrad degree. There is no funding for PHD level however, because they are privately funded.

This thread is 7 years old, hence the information being correct at the time (PG funding only came into practice in 2016 I believe). There is a PhD loan available, however most PhD students are funded by research councils and/or universities.
