    I am planning to start a part-time course in an Allied Heath Professionals subject this September as a second degree. I am a mature student, married with children. Am I likely to get a tuition fee/maintenance loan? Is there any additional help for students with children on part-time courses?

    Hi KLucy,

    From the academic year 2018/19 new part time students will be able to apply for a Maintenance Loan.

    Students are eligible to apply for second part time degree in one of the STEM subjects, these are commonly known as Part Time Exception Courses .

    Your course will have a JACS code to identify it as one of these STEM subjects.

    The JACS code is the unique identifier that SLC, UCAS and the HEP's use to distinguish courses.

    A students entitlement for the Maintenance Loan will be determined by 3 things:

    • Where they are living/studying
    • Household income
    • Intensity of study

    Thank you for your help.
    The course I have been offered a place with is BSc Speech and Language Therapy (one of the Allied Health Professions courses). It is my second degree and part-time.
    I assume it is not one of the STEM subjects (as you mentioned in your post) but would this be expected to count as one of the part-time exception courses? And therefore would I be able to access the student loans service for a tuition and maintenance loan?

    Thanks again,

    Lucy

    Hi Lucy,

    This means that students could be eligible to receive support for a second qualification if studying for a part time Honours Degree, Joint Honours Degree or Integrated Masters Degree in

    • Subjects Allied to Medicine (B)

    The JACS code is the unique identifier that UCAS and the universities's use to distinguish courses.

    The JACS code allowing you to identify which courses qualify.


    Students must be studying one of the following part time courses in order to be eligible to apply for a Part Time Maintenance Loan:

    • Bachelor Degree (with or without Honours)

    • Integrated Masters Degree

    • Healthcare Courses (Level 4, 5 ,6 and Integrated Masters Degrees)

    Any other qualifications with the exception of those listed above will not be eligible for the PTML during academic year 2018/19.
