    I already have an honours degree but I'm interested in taking a veterinary nursing foundation degree. I'm trying to find out what that will mean for me in terms of fees and my eligibility for loans etc. I've read that already having a degree could mean that I pay more fees and will have to fund most of the costs myself but I'd be grateful if you could give me some guidance on any funding that might be available to me. I'm 41 and live in England.

    Hi, I'm kind of in the same boat, I have a degree in sociology with psychology and want to do a foundation degree in speech, language and communication science. I have looked into funding and everything I read quiet clearly states that there is no help for a second degree, I would also appreciate if anyone knows any way of doing a second degree.

    There are some exceptions courses if you already hold a degree and are looking to study again. Veterinary Science is one of these. You would be entitled to full rate maintenance loan but no fees or grant for duration of course due to equivalent level qualification The student should apply on a new student application form.
