Hi,

I just wanted to confirm my funding options for my future possible plan. I think I know how it works but I wanted to confirm. In 2019 I completed a BA English with Creative Writing. I suspended from my MSc Paramedic Science (pre-registration) last year and resumed my studies in January but now I am going to withdraw due to mental health issues. It's been explained to me that I can apply for compelling personal reasons as long as I have sufficient evidence. So my plan is to apply for this, then use that funding for the MSc Psychology (conversion course) at Leeds Beckett.

However, after that I would either like to do the Clinical Psychology PhD at Leeds or Forensic Psychology (not sure where yet). Am I right in thinking that I would have to fund my own MSc in Forensic Psychology if this was the case? Am I also right in thinking that there is no way to get funding for an undergraduate in Psychology due to ELQ?

I've seen people discussing Psychology as an exemption course. What does this mean? What's the easiest way to do this (i.e which way can I get most funding?)

Thank you.

If your CPR evidence is accepted then you should be able to receive masters funding again.

This would be a doctoral course, you can be funded for this after completing your masters. You can find out more information here http://ow.ly/q3ct30oSf2L

Psychology is a part time exception course which means you can be funded as your previous study/qualifications do not affect eligibility.

Below is a list of the Full Time courses exempt from Equivalent Level Qualification (ELQ) and Previous Study rules:
- Graduate Entry Medical Chiropody
- Dietetics
- Dietetics and Nutrition (Please note that these courses specifically have both dietetics and nutrition in the title. The individual course ‘nutrition’ is not a valid Allied Health Professional course)
- Occupational Therapy
- Operating Department Practice (Diplomas and Degrees)
- Orthoptics
- Physiotherapy
- Podiatry
- Prosthetics and Orthotics
- Radiography (diagnostic and therapeutic)
- Radiotherapy
- Speech and Language Therapy/ Dental courses

Part Time
If you already hold an Honours degree or a higher level (HE) qualification, you are able to apply for a Part Time Fee Loan for any one of the exception course below. For students who start a new course from 18/19 onwards, this will mean they can apply for the Part Time Maintenance Loan as well as tuition fees.
- Medicine and Dentistry
- Subjects to Allied Medicine
- Biological and Sport Science
- Psychology
- Veterinary Sciences
- Agriculture, Food and Related Sciences
- Physical Sciences
- General and Others in Sciences
- Mathematical Sciences
- Engineering and Technology
- Computing
- Geographical and Environmental Studies

Thanks, Isaac

Thank you! Just to clarify, Forensic Psychology looks like it would be another Masters first. So after the MSc Psychology conversion course, am I right in thinking I would have to self-fund a second Masters into this?

You won't be funded for a second masters course - you would have to self fund.
Thanks, Isaac
