Hi, I am due to finish a Masters next year for which I have student funding to cover the cost of the course. I would like to re-train as a speech and language therapist (MSc) so would I be eligible to apply for funding for this NHS training? Thanks

Hi Alexi,

Can you confirm when you course starts and what university you're doing this from and we can check this on the system for you? Can you confirm if you're pre-registered already in this area?

Thanks,
Claire

Hi Claire

The pre-registration Masters in Speech and Language Therapy starts in September 2020 and I hope to apply for either Manchester Metropolitan University or the University of Manchester
I will have finished my current Masters in July 2020, so I need to know whether I will be able to get student finance for a second Masters degree so I can train as a Speech and Language Therapist. Thank you

Hi there,

As per current policy, you can get undergraduate funding for any designated Postgraduate Healthcare Course whilst disregarding your previous study. Speech and Language Therapy as a subject is designated as it is an Allied Health Professional (AHP) subject.

Eligible courses must be:
-A minimum of 2 years in length
-Full Time (Distance Learning courses are not eligible)
-Level 7
-Pre-registration courses in Allied Health Profession subjects, Nursing and Midwifery that lead to a PG Diploma or a Master's Degree.


Regards,
Nihad

Thanks Nihad,

Please could you confirm if I apply for undergraduate or postgraduate funding? The Masters in Speech and Language Therapy is an AHP course and is postgraduate, but you refer to undergraduate course above?

Also please could you confirm how the repayment will work with this being a second Masters?

Many thanks, Alexis

Hi there.

You would apply as an undergraduate student as you would be funded via the undergraduate scheme.

You can find further details on repayments here: https://www.gov.uk/repaying-your-student-loan
