Loan for second degree holder

Hi Team,

I previously completed ug in accounting & finance and also working. I am seeing the demand for data/computer science.

I would like to study data or computer science part time, i believe I can get tution fee loan from student finance.

Am i also entitled to maintenance loan? And does this matter if my pt course is online or not.

I have been trying to find the answer to my above question but not had any look and so I am posting in hope for an answer.
Hi there,

Computer Science is considered an exception to previous study and equal level qualification rules, therefore you would be eligible for support for an eligible course. You will only be eligible for the Tuition Fee Loan if you are distance learning as this type of study does not attract Maintenance Loan funding. The only exception to this would be if you had a disability that prevented you from attending a course in person and can provide evidence to show this.

Thanks, Clare
