    Hi,this year I finished my first undergraduate degree in Czech Republic in the field of International Relations. Two years ago I also started to study Chinese studies (undergraduate), also in Czech Republic. It took me a lot of time and I was not succesfull in completing that degree. Now I am in a situation when I want to study in UK and specifically Chinese Studies at SOAS, London. This will be possible only if I could qualify for a student loan. I know there are some limitations, and that there are some limitations about me not studying the first degree. However as I am looking at this note here: https://www.gov.uk/student-finance/who-qualifies

    That confirms you are ineligible due to you previous degree.
    Maybe you could find a postgrad masters ? There is a postgrad loan of £10k.
