Hi I'm just looking for some advice. I completed an art degree in 2013 but I'm looking to retrain as a physiotherapist! I have completed the relevant courses to apply for university but was wondering if I could apply for student finance or qualify for help to complete a degree. I live my husband and would not be able to afford a full time university course without help. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

If your course is a NHS course, you would be able to get funding to complete this through the NHS and a maintenance loan from Student finance England.
From the 2017/2018 year the funding will be different for NHS courses and you apply for all you funding through SFE. NHS courses are classed as an exception and you are able to be funded even if you hold a degree.
