Hi, I'm almost ready to press submit on my application to study Occupational Therapy as a mature student. I'm 38 and studied my first degree in the USA so didn't obtain any UK student finance. I was up in the night with my 9 month old and was stressing about how we will manage financially and if I will be eligible to receive all the student finance because it will be my second degree. Any advice would be much appreciated!

Hi there,

In order to determine your eligibility, please confirm:

1. Which university and course you are looking to start your studies with?
2. How old you are.
3. Your nationality, current status and time spent within the UK.
4. Any previous study and qualifications you may hold.


Thanks, Isaac

Hi,

I'm looking at Leeds Beckett to study a BSc (hons) Occupational Therapy. I'm 38 years old, I'm a UK citizen living permanently in the UK. I completed my GCSE's and A- Levels in the UK before moving to the USA for 5 years where I completed a BSc at Texas A&M University.

Many thanks,

Rosie

How long have you been back in the UK? What was your purpose for going to America?

I graduated in May 2007 and have been back in the UK ever since. I received a sports scholarship to attend university in the USA.
