    Hi, so I've done a foundation year and also another year with the Open University. I'm hoping to start a degree in Occupational therapy in sept 2018. I know that previously you were only allowed funding for up to the number of years your course is +1. However, i know the changes allow funding for second degrees for some courses.
    My question is am I eligible for funding although I have not completed a previous degree but have used up two years of funding?

    Hi winter89,


    Occupational Therapy is an Allied Health Professional Course this will be 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
