    Hi,
    I have applied to SAAS support to pay my tuition fees, but they refused my application because I have already studied a previous course and gained a degree qualification in Hungary some years ago.
    (Otherwise I enrolled to a BA course, entry level 2.)

    As a matter of fact I did not received any support from EU public funds at my first BA degree, because I payed a tuition fee as I attended to a fee-paying course. Well I could get a support from public funds if I did not received any EU public funds can I?

    Does anyone have experience with it? Please let me know and tell your story, maybe you could help me. Many thanks.

    It doesn't matter if you received public funds or not for your previous degree, the fact that you have a degree renders you ineligible for funding from the British government, due to the "same or higher qualification clause"
