Hi,

I'm studying Veterinary Medicine full-time as a second degree (hold BSc Zoology already), it comes under the new 2017/17 STEM category but would I be eligible for tuition fee loans for my final 2 years?

Thanks,

As it's not an NHS course I think it's not an exception to the rules at the moment.

Its definitely been listed as STEM for 2017/18, but might only be part-time

Hi Ness,

From 2017/18, 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.

If you are studying a second degree in Veterinary Science on a full time basis, you are entitled to full rate maintenance loan but no fees or grant for duration of course due to having an equivalent level qualification.


This Equivalent Level Qualification (ELQ) exception only applies to part time courses, anyone applying to do one of these courses full time will be subject to the standard ELQ rules.


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 one of the STEM subjects

There are several courses which will fall into one of the categories listed which includes,

  • Veterinary Sciences, Agricultural & Related Subjects (D)

To determine if the course would qualify as an exception it must begin with one or more of the following JACS Codes (H, I, J, B, C, D, F or G).

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

Regards Rona
