I'm planning on doing a 2nd degree in nursing. My 1st degree was a BSc Maths (2008) and I got a pass (no honours).

I'm 34 and plan on living at home, but I still have to pay rent. My brother is the one with their name on the mortgage.

Could I still get tuition costs covered? I know it's possible if your 1st degree was an honours grade, but mine wasn't. On the other hand the wording does say "Honours degree or a higher level of qualification".

Does Higher level of qualification = degree with no honours?

Where do I apply for the £5000/year grant?

What other financial assistance could I get Maintenance Loans, extra help etc?

Nursing is an exempt subject. That means you’ll get funded like this is your first time at university regardless of how long you studied in the past or what qualifications you hold.

The online application system doesn’t often recognise exempt courses so you might need to apply using the paper PN1 form by post instead - so don’t delay applying for funding.

Aha, I still remember in 2004, I was doing my applications in good ol' fashion paper n ink.
Roger on the apply ASAP. Got plenty of time since I plan on doing this course in 2022.
