    Hi

    Allied Health Professional Courses are exempt from previous study and ELQ rules. Therefore, if you already hold a degree or have previous study you will still be eligible to access the full package of funding.

    Thanks

    Hi, I just have a few questions. If I was to apply to a 2 year- msc physiotherapy pre-registration course is the maximum amount of post-graduate funding still £10,280? I've seen a few pre-registration courses that ask for around £13,000 per year of tuition so I was wondering whether the funding would be different as the current post-graduate funding would not cover these courses. If this is the case, would applying to a 3 year undergraduate course (as a second degree) be a better option as I would be able to get the same tuition and maintenance loan as a first undergraduate degree?

    Hi tisharne,

    The Postgraduate Loan (PGL) is a contribution towards your total costs. There are other funding sources available and the gov.uk website has a Postgraduate Funding section which is a useful starting point.

    I would also advise having a chat with prospective universities about bursaries & scholarships they may provide.

    There may be more to consider than just the funding when it comes to the actual course. So I think you'd need to discuss best options with prospective universities.

    Regards,

    Stuart
