Depends, do you plan to finish this degree and then do a second one or do you plan to stitch now. SFE normally provides one extra year of funding (course length 1) if you switch after first year you should still be fully covered but not if later

i want to complete my degree in fine art and then go into doing a second degree in education can i get funding for that? i heard that nhs degrees are free for a second degree. because its in education.
Hi there. Typically, if you go on to study another degree that is an equivalent or lower level than the one you already hold, you are not entitled to the funding. However, some courses are exception's to this rule, which means you can received funding even if you already hold a degree at the same level.

This depends on the course and we would need more information on the course to determine this.

It's also important to note that eligibility rules can change, so the information we provide now may not be accurate by the time you go to study the new degree. So, you are better checking nearer the time as well. Thanks, Leah.

i'm thinking of getting into teaching after my degree. i'm just wondering if a pgce would be better then an extra degree.
Hi aiasally2,

Is it a PGCE you are looking to study after your Fine Art degree?

Thanks,

Hi aiasally2,

We are unable to advise on what course is better to study, I would advise speaking with your university about this.

Thanks,
Calum
