Hi there,

I have previously completed an undergraduate degree and received a full student loan, maintenance loan, and maintenance grant for it. I'm interested in returning to university to study BSc (Hons) Diagnostic Imaging B821 at Glasgow Caledonian University, and have seen several posts stating that this is an exception course, and I would be able to able to apply for a student loan and maintenance loan.

However, I spoke with a representative from Student Finance on the phone earlier, and they said that this is not an exception course. Could you confirm whether or not this particular course at GCU is an exception course, and if I would be able to apply for funding, please?

Sorry if this an obvious thing to ask - I just want to be clear on my options. Thank you for your time.

Below is a list of the Full Time courses exempt from Equivalent Level Qualification (ELQ) and Previous Study rules:

- Podiatry

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.

Hi Isaac,

Thank you for getting back to me. The course I intend to study (details here: https://www.gcu.ac.uk/study/courses/...ostic_Imaging/) would be full time.

Although the course name does not explicitly contain the word 'radiography', the content of the course is focused on diagnostic radiography. I saw that you advised another prospective student here: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=6615974 - that their course in Diagnostic Radiography with the course code B821 at Hertfordshire University would be considered an allied health professional course, and that their previous study would not affect their eligibility. As the course that I'm keen to do at Glasgow Caledonian University has the same course code, and is also focused on diagnostic radiography, would I eligible for funding for this course at this university despite my previous studies?

Good morning, I have reviewed the database and this course shows as an AHP exception course. You should be eligible for funding regardless of previous study.
Thanks, Isaac
