Can I get funding for a second degree in Marine Biology, part-time?

Please can someone advise if part-time Marine Biology BSc degrees are subject to the ELQ exemption rule please? The courses of interest are either at Chester University or Salford University.
Thank you!

Hi there,

I don't see a part time course for Marine Biology at The University of Chester unless it's a postgraduate one you're looking to study? If not, can you confirm the specific course name (and code if possible)?

The University of Salford one does look to be an exception. Thanks, Jason

Hi Jason,

Thanks so much for your reply.

Please can I ask, with it being an exemption course, would that mean that I would be entitled to a part-time maintenance loan as well (aligned with household income), or would it just mean that tuition fees are paid?

Also, would the course at Salford still be an exemption course if I had to take it with the foundation year please?

Lastly, here is the link for Chester:

Thanks. It's maybe because it's a September 2024 course as the 24/25 courses are not yet on the database to confirm eligibility. If the course attracts maintenance loan then yes, you'd be entitled to this. If the foundation year is part of the degree then that would be classed as an exception. Thanks, Jason
