Hi,I already have a masters, and haven't made much progress in paying off my undergraduate student loan. I think from Student Finance Wales. I'd now really like to do another masters in a very different field as if like to change career directions. Would I be able to get any financial help?Many thanks

My recollection of the rules is that by already having a masters, you would ineligible for a postgraduate loan.

I may be wrong and funding may be different in Wales, so someone with more knowledge may correct me.

Student Finance England would only finance my undergrad and first postgrad masters.
It wounds like SF Wales is the same- https://www.studentfinancewales.co.u...igibility.aspx

How do you feel about studying at doctorate level?
SF Wales offers student finance loans up to £25,000.

You cannot receive a postgraduate loan from Student Finance Wales if you already hold a qualification at master's level. You can self-fund a second master's, or try to find other sources of private funding.

EDIT: some courses are exempt from this rule, such as healthcare courses and a PGCE. As you didn't specify what you want to study, we can't give you more specific advice.

You would still be able to get Research Council funding for a second master's as part of a 1+3 award, but that's obviously only if you intend on going on to a PhD (and there's a suitable course).

You'd likely have to fund it yourself or get one through a job and have the company pay your fees.

You'd be fine for a PGCE. Maybe you'd be able to get funding for a masters in social work?
