    I have seen the department of health has released a statement on changes to funding for health professions, since the NHS bursary is being scrapped.
    It is confirmed that students undertaking a second degree (permitting this is midwifery / nursing / other allied health profession) can get another student loan from SFE on the same terms as a first degree.

    I quote: "As is current policy, students who take out two undergraduate loans will not repay the second after the first, but instead will have the second loan balance added on to the first. Loan repayments will remain income dependent."

    I don't know if this means:
    1) Both loan balances added together to make a whopping £90,000 (estimate) and you repay the same amount as you would have if you only had 1 loan but it takes you longer to pay off. Or;
    2) Both balances added together and you pay off both at the same time.

    Can anyone offer up any suggestions?

    It's number 1 unless you have a plan 1 loan (pre 2012) then it'd be different So you pretty much would never pay your second loan off anyway.
