On gov.ik it states:

"If you already have a degree
You may be eligible for limited funding in certain circumstances.
You may get limited funding if you’re ‘topping up’ a higher education qualification, for example you’ve finished an HNC, HND or Foundation Degree and now want to do an Honours degree."

I have an ordinary degree (no honours) and wish to take a top up course in countryside management. My degree was part-time, so I do not have a specific number of "years of study" to state, if this is relevant.

Would I be eligible for top up funding for full-time study?

Hi, was it a foundation degree you were studying? You should be funded for a top up course. I advise you to submit your application as soon as possible and our assessors will review.
Thanks, Isaac

Thanks Isaac. No, it's not a foundation degree, it's an ordinary degree, ie. no honours. Does this make a difference?

An ordinary degree is level 6, the same level as an honours degree. You will be ineligible for funding for a BA hons top up course if you already hold a level 6 qualification.
Thanks, Isaac
