HI! I studied and completed my HNC & HND course that was 2 years.
Can I study a new degree course in the university?
I contacted student finance and they told me to write in here to you guys let me know about my options to get tuition fee support, Maintenance Loan, etc...
Can you guys tell me the full courses of the exception list part time or full time?
Thanks!

Full time it’s nursing and other specific health professions. If your HND lets you start a degree in yr 2 then you wouldn’t need an exception course.

Part time you wouldn’t need an exception course if you were studying towards a degree. For part time everyone gets up to 13 (I think) years of funding and so if you’ve only used 2 you can get funding for any degree as long as it’s a degree.

That list is all AHPs

The exemption list is smaller - this was the list 2 years ago. Afaik it hasn’t changed (except I think paramedic science has now been added )

Hi Greg

If you wish to study a second degree you could still be eligible to receive funding if you study a course in Nursing, Midwifery or one of the following AHP courses:
  • Chiropody
  • Dietetics
  • Dietetics and Nutrition
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Operating Department Practice (Diplomas and Degrees)
  • Orthoptics
  • Physiotherapy
  • Podiatry
  • Prosthetics and Orthotics
  • Radiography (diagnostic and therapeutic)
  • Radiotherapy
  • Speech and Language Therapy
So of your interests physiotherapy seems like it could be the closest match but be warned admissions for physio degrees is very competitive and you need to apply with an understanding of what NHS physio involves (it is not sports physio).

It’s not the ucas code for full time exemptions it’s the course itself. You need to check with the course provider if it is eligible for second degree funding.

Ucas tariff points are to compare level 3 qualifications. HND and HNC are level 4 and 5 qualifications. They don’t get tariff points. That doesn’t mean they’re not accepted for entry onto a degree course but it means that you need to check with the university whether they are suitable qualifications for entry.

So basically I need to speak with the university and ask if the course is elegible for second degree funding?

If the foundation year is integrated then it should be fine.
Thanks, Isaac
