I already have a BA in English Literature but I am interested in applying for a degree in Optometry with a foundation year.
I know I wouldn't get a tuition fee loan for a second degree but would I get a maintenance loan? I am aware that maintenance loans are available for people doing a second degree that leads to a professional or medical qualification and I am unsure if this includes BSc Optometry as it attracts no NHS funding.

Hi there.

As the course is not an NHS funded course, for which we only normally offer a reduced rate of loan anyway, we are not able to issue core funding for it. Students who study an equivalent level of qualification to one they already have, can apply for supplementary grants such as childcare and DSA only.

Thanks.
