    Hi Simon,

    What subject do you hold your BA Hons degree in?. And what University do you wish to study at for your counselling course and is it full time or part time ?

    Thanks

    BSc in counselling & psychotherapy part-time.
    The Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute
    Nottingham

    Their website says the following:



    n 2017/18 the UK Government introduced a new scheme enabling graduates (both undergraduate and postgraduate) to apply for a Part-time Tuition Fee loan to undertake a second degree (the second degree must be part-time and in a qualifying STEM subject). This opportunity has enabled SPTI applicants to be eligible to apply for an undergraduate student loan towards their tuition fees despite their previous educational history.

    Hi Simon,

    The course details that you have provided are listed as a Part Time STEM course for 17/18. The higher Education provider (HEP) is a private institution and the Counselling and Psychotherapy course is listed as one that Student Finance funded for 2017/18 academic year.
    Whether this course will still be eligible for funding by Student Finance in 2018/19 we are currently unable to confirm .
    Applications for Part Time funding in 2018/19 are not yet available until around June.
    If the course is still eligible for funding is 18/19 you will be eligible to apply for a Tuition Fee Loan of up to £4625.00 and any students commencing a new part time course that begins on or after 1 August 2018 may be eligible for a Part Time Maintenance Loan.
    If the student has an ELQ they will not be eligible for funding unless their new course is a part time exception subject (STEM) course.

    Thanks
