    I am going to uni in September and would love to do either illustration or psychology, because I am undecided I am just going to choose one to do as a degree because I love both subjects the same. However, is it possible for me to, for example, get an illustration degree and then go back to uni and get a psychology degree?

    Yes it is but you've only got four year funding so if you do a degree for 3 years (without resitting a year) you will have one year left of SF, so if your other degree is 3 years you will have to find 18k to pay for the remaining two years of study.

    Yeah, sure. Just win the lottery.

    But seriously, no. For most normal people, no. I've only done/about to do 2/3 degrees because 1. I did my first one at 18 and got full loans/bursaries 2. I've paid for the second one myself and I won't complete the full degree, just part. 3. My 3rd one is NHS funded and a career decision.

    My first degree was academic, non-vocational (humanities/arts) - I couldn't have done two such degrees and more to the point, I wouldn't have wanted to since my first degree was useless in terms of employment.

    No, that's incorrect. You receive funding for a degree (plus an additional year to allow for a resit/change of course). Once you have a degree there is no further funding available so someone will have to pay for the whole course through scholarships or savings themselves.

    OK thank you for correcting the statement that I made
