    as i understand , we can get tuition fee finance for second degrees if studying STEM on part-time mode. I am about to start my second degree in engineering in sep2016.
    but i was wondering if some better rules come up in 2017/18, like , funding support for full time , or maintenance loan support (part time/full time) etc , will i be able to get those?????

    or will i be unable to , due to starting my course before such new rules ( if any) come up!!!!

    I have read some where that there is going to be extra support ( maintenance loan) available to part time students from 2017.....

    Thank you.....for any information in this matter.

    You can get a second tuition fee loan if you're doing a part-time degree in computer science, technology or engineering. Currently part-time students are not eligible for a maintenance loan. Last year the government announced plans to extend maintenance loans to part-time students from 2018/19 (although, it might be wise to assume that this won't happen at all if there is an early election).

    If you start your course before part-time maintenance loans are introduced then you probably won't be able to take one out.
