Hi all,

I current have a master in finance and I am planning to start a new one in computing next January.

I was browsing the UK. Gov funding website on the link below and found the following

You may also get limited funding if you hold an Honours degree or a higher level of qualification and start a new course. This could be a part-time Honours degree, a joint Honours degree or an Integrated Master’s degree in one of the following (or 2 if it’s a joint Honours degree):

agriculture and related subjectsarchitecture (if it’s a MArch RIBA Part 2 course)
biological sciences
computer science
mathematical sciences
medicine and allied subjects
physical sciences
technologies

https://www.gov.uk/student-finance/w...7-5687d8fbb64a

Its all. A bit confusing, and I am trying to understand if as holder of a master degree, I would eligible for student finance / assistance whilst pursuing a second master in the stem discipline.

Thanks for your help.

Unfortunately you can't funding for this.

You can only get funding for a second degree if it's an exceptions course. As you already have a masters qualification you can't receive funding for another.
Thanks, Isaac

To get funding for another masters, you would need to study a postgraduate healthcare course, like nursing, midwifery etc.

You can get funding for an undergraduate second degree if it's an exceptions course.
Here are the undergraduate exception courses

Below is a list of the Full Time courses exempt from Equivalent Level Qualification (ELQ) and Previous Study rules:
- Graduate Entry Medical Chiropody
- Dietetics
- Dietetics and Nutrition (Please note that these courses specifically have both dietetics and nutrition in the title. The individual course ‘nutrition’ is not a valid Allied Health Professional course)
- Occupational Therapy
- Operating Department Practice (Diplomas and Degrees)
- Orthoptics
- Physiotherapy
- Podiatry
- Prosthetics and Orthotics
- Radiography (diagnostic and therapeutic)
- Radiotherapy
- Speech and Language Therapy/ Dental courses

Part Time
If you already hold an Honours degree or a higher level (HE) qualification, you are able to apply for a Part Time Fee Loan for any one of the exception course below. For students who start a new course from 18/19 onwards, this will mean they can apply for the Part Time Maintenance Loan as well as tuition fees.
- Medicine and Dentistry
- Subjects to Allied Medicine
- Biological and Sport Science
- Psychology
- Veterinary Sciences
- Agriculture, Food and Related Sciences
- Physical Sciences
- General and Others in Sciences
- Mathematical Sciences
- Engineering and Technology
- Computing
- Geographical and Environmental Studies


Thanks, Isaac
