Is there any funding for a second degree in veterinary medicine tuition? e.g. even one or two years tuition fee? Also, would i still get maintenance loans for my second degree?

I will have studied bioveterinary science for 3 years with full student finance.
Previously, i changed my degree after a year so all together I have had 4 years student finance.

It's graduate veterinary medicine for 4 years in total

Thank you

Hi Aimee,

Do you have a specific course in mind?

Students who are studying to be a veterinary surgeion as a second degree can apply for Maintenance Loan and supplementary grants. You would not be eligible for Tuition Fee Loan.

If you were to study an eligible veterinary sciences course part time then you could apply for Fee Loan and Maintenance Loan. We can check this for you if you provide the course details.

Warm regards, Tégan

Hi Aimee,

If you wish to apply for a full time course, you would be eligible to apply for the Maintenance Loan and Supplementary Grants (if applicable). Unfportunatley you will not be eligible to apply for the Tuition Fee Loan.

Thanks,

I believe as vetmed is on the shortage list it should be able to be funded as a full-time course as a second degree. Not only that but if you've already done a 3 year course, if you had done vetmed you would have got 5 years funding so I do not see why the last two years of the second degree for vetmed shouldNot be funded. For those who cannot afford to achieve their dream all because of money is very disheartening. Especially when this occupation is short listed. Instead of helping and educating our own generation, people form outside the uk who can qualify as a vet with no tuition fees get the opportunity. Fair enough as they have worked hard and earned it but the education system
Is unfair
