I have recently undergone a university degree and have successfully completed it. However now i find myself wanting to study a completely different subject at university level. Do i have the option to apply for student finance to fund my second degree if i chose to pursue it?

Not if it's an undergraduate degree.

If it's a masters degree then yes.

Only if it's an NHS-based degree, which is exempt from restrictions on funding second degrees.

Hi XPhebeZ,

Student Finance England will not fund an equivalent level qualification ELQ, unless it classed as an exception couse.

Can I ask what is the course that you are looking at undertaking?

Thanks Rona

Hi XPhebeZ,

In general, if you already hold a degree you won't be eligible to receive student finance for another degree. There are some courses that re exceptions to this rule, these are usually NHS courses, PGCE's and Allied Health Professions (AHP's).

I hope this information helps.

Kind regards,

John.
