I am interested in applying for the MSc Nurse Paramedic course at Edge Hill university in Sept 2021. I already have a BSc in Psychology and have had 3 years of full-time funding from SFE, so this would be my second degree.

I have spoken to SFE about this course but there seems to be some confusion about my eligibility for funding, maybe because the course is relatively new? (First intake Sept 2020).

The university have confirmed that it is a pre-registration healthcare course and that it is exempt from previous study rules. They have also confirmed that even though it is a 4-year integrated masters, I would need to apply for undergraduate funding for all 4 years, including the final masters year.

So because this course is exempt from previous study rules, will I be eligible to apply for funding from SFE for all 4 years of undergraduate study?

Hi Michelle, I've checked the database and discussed this with my colleagues. We are unsure if this is an exception course because of the paramedic part of the course and paramedicine isn't an exception course but Nursing is.

We advise you to submit an application as soon as the applications launch early next year and our assessors will make a decision.
Thanks, Isaac

I understand there is confusion but the university themselves have confirmed it to me by saying:

"Unfortunately, BSc (Hons) Paramedic Practice students are not exempt from previous study rules.

However, students joining pre-registration programmes in Midwifery, Nurse Paramedic (Adult), Nursing, Nursing & Social Work (MNSW awards), and Operating Department Practice are exempt from previous study rules."

I know that you cannot tell me exactly what funding I'm entitled to until I make my application. However, all I need to know is whether I'm even entitled to apply for a tuition fee loan/maintenance loan.
Surely, there must be a way for me to get that clarified before I have to do the whole application through UCAS and then wait till Feb 2021 to even make a SFE application?

The university don't decide our regulations. If it is an exception course then you will be entitled to the Maintenance & Tuition Fee Loans.

I have checked the database and it shows as pre registration so it could be an exception course but I discussed this with my colleagues and the paramedic part makes us unsure so it's not something I want to guarantee without an assessor reviewing your application.
Thanks, Isaac
