Pre-registration Postgraduate Funding

Hi I'm sure this will have been asked hundreds of times but here goes. I have applied and been accepted onto a Postgraduate (masters) course on a pre-registration paramedic course. Looking at the gov website it seems I am eligible to apply got funding for my masters degree, however there is a small sentence towards the bottom of the page that states anyone applying for a pre-registration masters course in an allied health profession is not eligible after 2018. I have been told by SfE that I am eligible but have been told this previously when applying for a BSc in Paramedicine before being turned down due to it being a second degree. So my question really is would I be eligible for the funding, or has anyone got any experience of being rejected for the funding for an MSc pre reg course before? Thanks

I'm not sure, I believe there's the NHS learning support fund? Unsure on eligibility

Paramedic Science courses are only classed as an exception if the student is entitled to funding from the Ambulance Service Trust. If they are not eligible for support from the Ambulance Service Trust they can apply to us for full support, but this will be subject to ELQ rules.

Checking the course on the system it only shows course for 3 years not 2?

Thanks,
Claire

Thank you Paul. I cannot see this course listed on our system, you would have to speak with the University directly about this. Also, as mentioned above, your eligibility is going to be dependant on if you receive the ambulance service trust fund or not. I would advise raising both of these and letting us know when you have this information. Thanks, David
