What is the situation on the funding for studying physiotherapy as a second degree? September 2018 entry. I am still unsure which route i will take, the pre-registration route in two years or to study another three year BSc. Any information will be great.

You will get funding, but as I understand it now, there is no bursary. The caveat to this would be have you cleared all your loans should you have had any from your first degree? I don't believe you qualify for further finance until you have, though checking the student loan site / giving them a call would be the best way of getting a definitive answer.
So I applied for the MSc Physiotherapy (Pre-registration) Course at Birmingham, East Anglia, Brunel, Brighton, Northumbria, and Southampton.
I got offers from Brunel and Southampton.
I got rejections from Birmingham, East Anglia, and Northumbria (all before an interview)
Brighton were going to give me an interview, but i had already accepted Southampton. I start in January 2018
So most unis will offer an NHS funded place, which means the government pays for you to be a physiotherapist. In my opinion, it would be better to do the MSc Physiotherapy Course since you get funding, as well as a Masters degree under your belt!
