2nd degree course

Hi I’m currently in the process of applying for a nursing degree as a mature student (41) my question is that I went to university when I was 18 and did a fashion course which was completely wrong for me! I studied for a year and dropped out after the first year due to medical circumstances. I am worried that I will have to pay towards my nursing degree but have also heard that a nursing course is exempt as a second degree
Hi SarNar,

Nursing is an exception to previous study rules, therefore you would be eligible for full support as long as you meet all other standard eligibility criteria and the course/university attracts SFE funding.
