But as i have a mortgage to pay, i'm wondering what other funding is available to me if any? any help will be very much appreciated

    Look on student finance website. You may be eligible for a maintenance loan/grant depending on your household income

    The NHS aren't funding courses from 2017 onwards. You'll be eligible for a maintenance loan to pay your tuition fees and you will be eligible for a maintenance loan, the size of which depends on household income- in your case if you are married they would assess your partners income, if you aren't married you will get the max amount. Beyond that universities offer bursaries for low income students.
