Second degree funding for Nursing / Social worker

Hi everyone i ve completed last year a BA Hons in Animation full time (4 years) and i would like to apply for a second BA full time in nursing or social work, would i be eligible for full funding (tuition and maintainance loans)? If yes, in which order do i need to apply ? NHS LSF and SLC both in the same time? If not, would i be eligible for part time only (including tuition and maintainance?

Thank you, greatly appreciated

With the NHS LSF, you need to show your eligibility for student finance before you apply. So do your student finance application first. I'll leave it to the SFE/SLC reps to reply to the other part of your question. :smile:

Hi there, yes you can apply for the funding and if it's for the 24/25 academic year you can apply now via your account. As long as you're not already registered in the field you're applying for then you'd be assessed for the funding. You can then apply for the other sources of funding mentioned above. Thanks, Jason

Hi Jason, thank you for you reply, No, i m not registered in the field. Would i be eligible for tuition fee and maintenance as well for a full time BA Hons Social work 3 year course? Are nursing / social work courses classified as exemptions or all depends of the income / circumstance? Thank you again for your time

Hi Sandrin,

Nursing is an exception course and the finance would be Maintenance Loan, Tuition Fee Loan and Supplementary Grants if applicable.

Students will be eligible if they start a new course leading to a qualification as a:

Medical Doctor

Dentist

Veterinary Surgeon (Veterinary Science courses can only be classed as an exception if the course leads the student to be a fully qualified Veterinary Surgeon)

Architect (RIBA 1 and 2 studied as one continuous full time course)

Social Worker

Teacher

Finance for the above courses is Maintenance Loan, and Supplementary Grants if applicable.

Thanks,
Claire

Hi Claire, thank you so much for you reply, really appreciated it. I thought the actual nurse qualification is included as well on the list? Nursing (Adult) BSC course leading to a qualification as a nurse? All the best, Sandrin

Hi Sandryn,

On Claire's message she listed that the Nursing course is eligible for Maintenance Loan, Tuition Fee and Supplementary Grants. With the other courses they are only eligible for Maintenance Loan and Supplementary Grants.

With the course name you advised there is nothing showing matching this on system. I would suggest speaking to the university to check this is the correct name of the course on system and they can advise you also if the course attracts funding from us.

Thanks,
Claire

Hi Jason, thank you four you reply, this course comes with an integrated masters degree as well, that s why i was a bit confused if i will be eligible for both tuition and maintenance. It's also on the nhs lsf list as an exemption course so i think i should be ok with that.

Based on what you have advised it shows this course should be eligible for finance but nothing would be definite till you apply and the assessors can review this.
