Hi I just got off a call to SFE. Basically i have been accepted on the uclan operating department practice to start sept. I have a previous degree and also have 2 part time previous study. I have been advised i will be unlikely to get a tuition loan because of the amount of previous study i have. Is this correct.

Hi there!

I have attached the gov website in regards to that for you to check: https://www.gov.uk/student-finance/who-qualifies
From what I gather it would be unlikely for you to be accepted for the tuition loan as they are mainly aimed at people getting their first higher education qualification. In the case of 'topping up a degree', there is a chance for limited funding.

But I'm sure the guys StudentFinance will be able to answer your question in more detail.

I hope this helps you out!
Goodness.

The degree I am going for is an allied health degree and is exempt as per new government regulation brought in a fee years ago. So i would qualify for both tuition and maintenance as a second degree funding for it does not consider previous study.But thanks for the reply. Spoke to SFE again

No as its not on the exemption list.
If you already have a degree
You may be eligible for limited funding in certain circumstances.

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.

You may also get limited funding if you hold an Honours degree or a higher level of qualification and start a new course. This could be a part-time Honours degree, a joint Honours degree or an Integrated Master’s degree in one of the following (or 2 if it’s a joint Honours degree):

agriculture and related subjects
architecture (if it’s a MArch RIBA Part 2 course)
biological sciences
computer science
mathematical sciences
medicine and allied subjects
physical sciences
technologies
courses leading to qualification as a veterinary surgeon
You could also be eligible if you’re starting a healthcare course on or after 1 August 2017.

For part time, look at the open uni.

Sociology is not considered a stem subject.

They tend to only give tuition loans for second degrees to those that want to do health or teaching.
