    Hi everyone,

    I am currently researching scholarships and educational grants in order to cover funding for a full time 4 year degree in Osteopathy. My first degree (in a different field) was financed by my employer at the time (not via the government), however I am not eligible to apply for a government loan because this will be my second degree. Can anyone offer any advice in self-funding for an undergraduate? I'm familiar with a PCDL, however its limited to £10,000 and a max course duration of 2 years.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Kind regards,
    Craig

    Hi Craig,

    Unfortunately I'd be unable to offer advice on funding from other companies.

    However, some courses that are allied health professions are exceptions and receive funding for a second degree. It is course specific so it may be worthwhile contacting the university you're going to study to check the course.

    Kind regards,

    John.

    Hi John,

    Thanks for the quick response.

    I have contacted National Careers Advice that was advised by the universities admission team, and they pointed me in a few directions. However, many scholarships and charitable funding only offer maximum funds of £2k. As I have no savings, I would need to apply for multiple scholarships in order to pay for the entire course (£37k). I'll do more digging and update the thread as and when I make more progress.

    Cheers,
    Craig
