    I read recently that the provision of second student loans are being extended to people going on to study a second degree in nursing, midwifery or another allied health profession (e.g. paramedic).

    Is this a full student loan as before, where the maximum is approximately £8.4k (currently) per year as well as funding of the course (currently £9.25k), or is this a reduced student loan? Additionally are these second loans available if a person had already studied a 3 or 4 year undergraduate degree, e.g. 3 year BSc Biomedical Science, and then applied for a second 3 or 4 year undergraduate degree in healthcare, e.g. 3 year BSc Paramedical Science?

    Also what support is available to a person that has studied an undergraduate degree and then goes on to study a pre-registration 2 year MSc, e.g. 2 year MSc Nursing (Adult)? Would this be a full student loan that covers course costs and then the £8.4k for living expenses or is this restricted to the singular £10k postgraduate student loan?

    Apologies for the shear number of questions however the current available information on websites makes things very unclear.

    Hi Gumskull4,


    From 2017/18 it was agreed that any students studying Nursing, Midwifery or an AHP course would have any previous study or equal level of qualification (ELQ) they hold disregarded. This allows these students to access full SFE funding package in 2017/18 for a Nursing, Midwifery or AHP course.
    Students studying Paramedic courses may be eligible to receive funding from the Ambulance Service Trust. Students who receive this funding may also be eligible for funding from Student Finance England. However, each Ambulance Trust has discretion over the funding they award. Paramedic Science courses are only classed as an exception if the student is entitled to funding from the Ambulance Service Trust, if they are not eligible for this they can apply to us for full support but this will be subject to ELQ rules.


    Thanks

    Louise
