Hi,

I've got an offer to study Prosthetics and Orthotics in 2021 and want to get some clarity on what finance support I'm eligible for.

I already have an undergraduate degree. I know that for AHP degrees like P&O I can apply for a tuition fee loan even if it is a 2nd degree, but am I also able to apply for a maintenance loan?

Also, I will be over 25 when the course starts.
I'm unsure whether I'll be living with my parents or not.
If I lived with my parents would their income be taken into account or would I still be classed as an 'independent student'?

Thanks

Hi,
For the 2019/20 and 2020/21 AY we will fund the following AHP courses;
• Chiropody
• Dental hygiene (Honours degree, diploma or foundation degree)
• Dental therapy (Honours degree, diploma or foundation degree)
• Dental hygiene and dental therapy (Joint or dual honours)
• Dietetics
• Dietetics and nutrition
• Midwifery (Degree or diploma level)
• Nursing (Degree or diploma level)
• Nursing and social work** (Dual honours)
• Occupational therapy
• Operating department practice (Degree or diploma level)
• Orthoptics
• Physiotherapy
• Podiatry
• Prosthetics and Orthotics
• Radiography
• Radiotherapy
• Speech and language therapy


Our 21/22 regulations have not been released yet so we don't know if this will be the same for next year.

If "Prosthetics and Orthotics" is still an exception course in the 21/22 academic year then your previous study won't affect your eligibility and you will be able to apply for full funding, including a Maintenance Loan.
Thanks, Isaac
