The short answer is yes, you can have a level 4 qualification and then get a Student Loan. The guidance regarding not getting a Student Loan due to prior studies is only applicable where you already hold a degree levelqualification.

Well, a Level 5 is A-Level equivalent- and doing A-Levels is one route into University. So that's definitely not the case!

A levels are level 3. Level 5 is HND.

As for the funding, you should still be eligible for some if you're doing a top up. I can't find clarification on how much though.
From gov UK:
"You may get limited funding if you’re ‘topping up’ a higher education qualification, for example you’ve finished an HNC, HND or Foundation Degree and now want to do an Honours degree."

Yes, sorry. I meant A-Levels are level 3, my point still stands.
