Pre-registration physiotherapy loan eligibility

I am due to start a Physiotherapy (Pre registration) MSc however I already have an MSc (which I funded myself) from 2013-2015 in a non healthcare subject but relatable to physiotherapy (Sports Biomechanics). Does this mean I am ineligible for a postgraduate loan or should I still apply?I realise this is late in the day to be applying for a loan regardless but my finances have changed unexpectedly just before my return to education as I was hoping not to need to utilise a further student loan on top of my Undergraduate one.Thank you for any help with this.

Hi, this is a postgraduate healthcare course which attracts undergraduate funding not postgraduate funding.
Please confirm the university name and I will check the database to verify this.
Thanks, Isaac

Thanks for the info, so does this make me eligible for funding? It's St George's Uni London.

I can confirm this course attracts undergraduate funding. You are eligible for funding as long as you meet the residency criteria.
Thanks, Isaac

You're welcome :smile:
Hiya, I’m due to start the Master pre reg physio course at St Mary’s Twickenham in September. Do you know whether it is still the case that you can get funding for the full two years (undergraduate funding essentially)? Thanks for the help!

Hi Isaac, Do you know if Chichester uni is also the same in regards to applying for finance on the MSc Physiotherapy course?

Hello,

Physiotherapy (Pre-registration) is deemed a Allied Health Professional (AHP). AHP courses are exempt from previous study and Equivalent Level Qualification (ELQ) rules. Therefore, if you already hold a degree or have previous study, you'll still be eligible to access the full package of funding (Tuition Fees, Maintenance Loan, Supplementary Grants and Disabled Student Allowance if applicable), however, you must not be professionally registered in the subject of study.

Thanks, Lynsey.
What do you mean by you must not be professionally registered in the subject of study? I just finished my undergrad in sports rehab and now registered with BASRaT, does that mean if I apply for undergraduate funding for a Physiotherapy masters I won’t get it?

Hi there,

If you are already registered in the field you would not be eligible. So if you are registered in Nursing but wish to do Midwifery you can apply as this is a different field.

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks, Erin
