    This is just a thought that I had.... please do share your knowledge and opinion...
    I am currently doing my AS levels and aim to get into a degree to do with business and economics but in the back of my mind i have always had the dream of becoming a commercial pilot and there are degrees that train you to become a fully licensed commercial pilot . So after getting my degree in business or economics etc do you think its possible further on in life to get a pilot studies degree which is not really related to each other anyway but would be something i would enjoy equally as much. I would appreciate any opinions....
    Thanks!

    I can find business degrees that might be more affordable to fund privately, such as with BPP University, which would be neccessary assuming the government continues with only funding your first degree. Saying that, you cannot guarantee how much BPP will charge in the future, and you MIGHT earn more money by doing a business degree first (big assumptions here).

    How did you finance your second undergrad degree?

    Yeah that's the main thing i guess time and money...After getting a business degree there are more chances of earning immedietly albeit less than what i pilot would because it can sometimes take a fully licensed pilot 2-3 years to land a secure job with a decent airline.....

    Yes possible, but realistically unaffordable. You will only be funded by student finance for one of them.

    Mostly my savings but my spouse generously contributes as well.

    Graduate entry law and medicine, both undergraduate degrees, are two examples of this happening more frequently, though are probably more readily regarded as 'professional degrees'.

    Open uni is also considerably cheaper so personally I'd do aviation at brick uni and business via distance learning.

    In my case I am psychology undergrad with a foundation degree in counselling - which I can top up to a ba/bsc if I wanted to. But I am aiming for PhD as my main route so I won't be topping it up any time soon.
