Hi, so I studied adult nursing for 2 years and then withdrew from the course. I’m hoping to study child nursing from year 1 now. When I phoned student finance they said I could get money for 3 years as it’s an exception course. However, when I look online it says this only counts if it’s your second degree and you’re a post graduate student ?? Can someone please give me some information on this?? Really panicking

Nursing degrees are exception courses in that previous study years (or holding a degree) are ignored when determining eligibility.

you might find when you apply that the online application form fall over when you declare your previous study (the automated system doesn’t deal well with exception courses) so make sure you apply as soon as applications open in February/March so you have lots of time to sort out any issues with your application.
