    Hi Cmd12,

    Student Finance England will not fund a second degree unless it is an exception course.

    You will be pleased to know that Nursing is an exception course.

    Students domiciled in England, studying in England who hold an equivalent or higher level of qualification will still be eligible to receive full SFE funding and any years of previous study will be disregarded as long as you meet the residency requirements.

    That means eligible to receive full funding from Student Finance England i.e Tuition Fee Loan, Maintenance Loan and applicable grants.

    Thanks Rona

    Hi Cmd12,

    To be assessed for the same level of support as a home student you need to have five years residency in the UK.

    • Are ordinarily resident in England on the first day of the first academic year of the course ( except EU nationals who are exercising their right to roam/reside)
    • Have 5 years residency in the UK

    EU Nationals studying in England who don't have the relevant years residency within the United Kingdom will be eligible to apply for a Tuition Fee Loan as an EU student.

    Thanks Rona
