Hello, I have an existing honours degree in Education Studies and a Master's degree in Education. However, for the job roles I wish to pursue in marine conservation, many of them require a BSc in a marine science. I was wondering if there is the possibility for funding an additional degree in Ocean Science and Marine Conservation at Plymouth University (code F732), or perhaps an additional Master's degree in Marine Conservation also from Plymouth University? What are my options for re-training / further study with regards to funding?

Thanks!

Typically, you can't get further funding if you hold an equivalent qualification already. Some STEM courses are exempt if you study them part-time, which *may* be an option for you.

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

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
