Hi!

I have already completed a BA in Comparative Literature, which was funded with Student Finance grants and loans. I called Student Finance today and was told that, despite being a healthcare course, nursing is not classed as an exemption - which frankly doesn't sound right, and the person I spoke to did not sound particularly certain, rather was just reading off a list of exemption courses, from which the only healthcare one she mentioned was 'studying to be a doctor or dentist', as opposed to the 'medicine and allied subjects' listed on the Student Finance website.

I just wanted to clarify - would I not be eligible for any funding to study BSc Mental Health Nursing as a second undergraduate degree?

Thanks!

Hi, as long as you are not already registered as a Mental Health Nurse then you will be eligible to receive full funding as this is an exception course. Your previous study will not affect your eligibility.

Additionally you may also be eligible to receive the NHS Grant https://www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/nhs-learni...training-grant - if you are eligible for this Grant, it doesn't affect the amount of funding you can receive from SFE.
Thanks, Isaac

Thank you very much Isaac! That was the impression I had, I was just very thrown by the woman I spoke to saying otherwise. Thank you for confirming.
