Healthcare courses and student finance.

Hello,

I was wondering if someone could help me so it’s my understanding that if you do a healthcare course under the approved category (mental health nurse, midwife etc) then you can get the full student loan entitlement even if you’ve studied previously but I was wondering could you get it twice? So say you did a mental health nursing course and then wanted to do a midwifery course would that be possible and would you get student finance for them both or it it just one?

I’m only asking as I’m currently a year 1 psychology student and after my third year I would like to do a healthcare course but cannot decide so was wondering if I could do them both (one after another) or if I need to pick.

Thank you

Hi there,

Yes, you can apply for a second degree in healthcare as long as it is not the same field and are not registered in that particular field.

Hi Clare,

Thank you for your answer so just to make sure I understand it correctly if I do a mental health nursing course, I can then do a midwifery course as it’s not the same field?
