Hi all,

Anybody knows please what's the current situation with loans (tuition & maintenance) for previous degree holders? I know there are exception courses like STEM But wonder if both loans are the same amount as for first time students?

As for subjects that are not exempt (which I'm actually interested in most but no way I could afford to pay upfront) - I know there are no tuition loans for these but how about maintenance loans?

Hi italcactus,

You cannot receive any funding, fee or maintenance support to undertake a second degree unless it is classed as an exception course.

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 .

The tuition fees will be paid in the same manner as full time. This means the tuition fees will be paid directly to the HEP in 3 instalments during the Academic Year. They will be paid at 25%, 25% and 50%.

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

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

Regards Rona
