Hi all
I am coming to end of first yr of MH nursing, however, I have decided I really would rather do Occupational therapy.
As this is already a second degree, I wonder if anyone can tell me if I would be able to get a further 3 years funding for the OT degree considering I have now done a year MH nursing. Bearing in mind I already have a degree non health related for which I had 4 years funding as I had to have some time out. so in effect I will have a total of 8 years funding(4+4)
Many thanks in advance

Hi, as long as you are not already registered in this health field then your previous study will not affect eligibility.
Thanks, Isaac

Thanks Isaac
I note on the student finance guidelines it has very specific reasons listed for changing leaving course and says just not liking the course is not a valid reason. Would changing the course because I would prefer to do the other after experiencing this one affect my chances of getting student finance.
Or is it different rules for healthcare?
Thanks lucy
