Second degree funding

    • Thread Starter

    Hi there, I'm hoping someone can help because I'm extremely confused.
    I have applied to study social work this year as I found out through someone on the phone at SFE that there is an exception this year to giving second funding to people who have already studied a degree before.
    I could not get a student loan previously as I have studied a degree before but was told by someone at SFE this is being waived this year for some degrees based on job demand.
    Now I am in the course I have spoken to a number of students who have not been given finance because they have studied previously which is leading me to believe that the info I was given wax wrong. This has huge implications for me as I cannot fund myself. Does anyone know definitively what the rule is?


    Are you receiving funding for the social work course?
