    My sister has a previous BA degree however it was funded by the local council while she was working so doesn't have any previous loans etc with student finance !!

    She now wants to do another degree - as she hasn't already had finance with SLC would she be eligible for both the tuition free and maintenance loan ??

    It depends on the subject your sister wants to study. In general, you can't get a student loan if you already have a degree (it doesn't matter who paid for it), but you can get fee and maintenance loans if you study a degree allied to an NHS career (e.g. nursing, radiography etc). You can also get a tuition fee loan if you study a STEM degree part-time, but not a maintenance loan.
