    You wouldn't be affected by ELQ (equivalent or lower qualification) rules (which say you can't get funded for a degree if you already have a degree) because you don't have a degree.

    Whether you'd be eligible would depend on how much funding you received for your Dip (and where it came from) Mark Lee - SFE Official Adviser might be able to comment further (this is a question we get quite a bit on TSR) - if you were going the other way (from a Degree to an NHS funded diploma) then you'd be fine to receive funding.

    https://www.westminster.ac.uk/study/...evious-studies is worth a read - it seems to imply that you'd be eligible for a maintenance loan and other support but not for a tuition fee loan for you first few years of study. But whether that is affected by the fact that you were funded by the NHS bursary and not SFE for your previous study is the key question.

    Hi there i didnt have any funding from like a loan NHS funded my Nursing diploma level 5. Iv heard this before where others have said iw ould defo get a maintenance loan but only a loan to help fund the last year in my degree. So would have to fund my first 2 years i think they said. So it matches what you are saying
