Hi,

I have 2 degrees and wanted to know whether I would be eligble for funding for a third.

My first degree was a 1 year degree and I have paid back the full amount borrowed as it was less than £3000.

I have a second degree in Adult nursing. Which I have completed this year.

However , I now want to move over to Podiatry, possibly starting in September 2023 once I feel confident in my nursing. Would I be eligible for a student loan for it? I know healthcare students can get help for a second degree, but what about a third? As I actually only have debt for 1 degree.

Thank you
Sarah

Hello Sarah,

Podiatry is deemed a Allied Health Professional (AHP) course. AHP courses are exempt from previous study and Equivalent Level Qualification (ELQ) rules. Therefore, if you already hold a degree or have previous study, you'll still be eligible to access the full package of funding (Tuition Fees, Maintenance Loan, Supplementary Grants and Disabled Student Allowance if applicable), however, you must not be professionally registered in the subject of study.

Thanks, Lynsey.
