Due to family bereavement recently I’ve decided I want to change my course, but having looked into it I’m unsure how Student finance works if I was to do that, I have read that they will fund me for the whole of my new course if I have comepelling personal reasons. If anyone’s applied for this / knows more information I’d be really thankful for some help! 😊

What course do you want to change to? Some degrees are exempt from previous study rules and you wouldn’t need to apply for CPr

Perfect. Nursing is an exempt course. You can switch now or after finishing your law degree and the nursing degree would still be fully funded.

Does this mean I’d still get maintenance loan for the full nursing course too?

Yep. As an exempt course they don’t look at previous study or qualifications. You could have a PhD and you would still be entitled to funding like it was your first time at university.
