I currently have a degree in English language and am now currently on a pgce english secondary teaching course. I want to quit this course as it’s not the career for me and want to join a Full time adult nursing bsc with a foundation year. Would sfe cover the full 4 years as I’ve heard that 2nd degrees that lead to registration get funded. Additionally will my sfe application be affected if I quit the pgce course or possibly defer it.

Have you quit your PGCE? Do you know what the financial implications for quitting at this stage? as I am in the same position and I would like to terminate my place on the course.

Hi, your previous study will not affect your eligibility to receive funding for the Nursing course as long as you are not professionally registered in this field.

Thanks, Isaac

When I fill in the form for sfe , it ask whether it’s a full time undergraduate degree or a Pre-registration postgraduate health care course. Which would adult nursing fall into , as it’s not a postgraduate but it Pre-Registration and an undergraduate. Also , if I stay on to complete the pgce and then apply for the sfe is that still exempt as previous study.

Hi, you should ask your university if it's a postgraduate or undergraduate course and then tick the correct option.

Your previous study/qualifications do not affect your eligibility for the Nursing course.

Thanks, Isaac

Hi , I’m not sure about the full implications but I’ve spoken to an education advisor at a university that I’m considering applying to and asked about funding if I quit the pgce midway, he said they wouldn’t fund 2021/2022 since they funded the pgce for that year , but for 2022/23 onwards they fund as you can’t have 2 active course in the same year. They had a course start date for April , but I’ll have to wait for the September in take, which gives me time to prepare. So essentially they will pay regardless whether you drop out if you start September, as I’ve seen some course do start in Jan/Feb and April.

Will you also be switching the university?

Warm regards,

Shaun.

Possibly , I’ve applied for the same uni as one of my options. What happens in both cases ?

Also , if I’ve received a student finance overpayment that I need to payback in instalments will that affect my eligibility for a sfe loans for my 2nd degree of a 3 year nursing course ?
