Hi,

I have received full funding from student finance (both tuition fee and maintanance loans and also grants) for an undergraduate degree (BSc Psychology with additional foundation year) and a masters degree (MSc Brain Imaging and Cognitive Neuroscience). I have now decided to continue my imaging interest and train to become a radiographer.

I was previously advised I could get funding for a second undergraduate degree in 2020 (University of Leeds, BSc Diagnostic Radiography and University of Liverpool, BSc Diagnostic Radiography), regardless of my foundation year and masters level study.

I then came across a course at the University of Derby (Diagnostic Radiography (Pre-Registration) MSc) and tried to check eligibility to obtain student finance in 2020. Although it is a masters level course, it is stated on Derby's website:
"This course is eligible for funding via the Student Loans Company under the same terms and conditions as undergraduate tuition fee and maintenance loans."

I called to see if I would be eligible to receive funding for this degree and was told no.

I basically want to check that I am not able to receive funding for this course at Derby, and if not re-confirm that I am able to receive funding for the undergraduate level BSc course.

Thank you!
Lydia

Hello,

Yes we treat both named undergraduate and postgraduate healthcare courses as exception courses and disregard previous study.

As long as you're not already registered as a radiographer and it's a pre-registration course, you'll be able to apply for the full package of support. The course at Derby shows on our database as a 2 year full time postgraduate healthcare course (pre-registration).

Even though it's a master's, you'd still apply for full time undergraduate funding online.

This is subject to meeting our other standard eligibility criteria here - http://ow.ly/6s7l30omvck

Warm Regards, Dean.

Hi, does this funding also apply to the MSc Paramedic Science (pre-registration) as the University of Huddersfield? Also, why does this type of funding NOT apply to MSc Physician associate studies even though this is a postgraduate healthcare course? As the masters loan only covers half of the tuition fee not to mention any money to live off in order to survive....

Hi, these courses you mentioned are not postgraduate healthcare courses.
Thanks, Isaac
