Funding for second masters

Hi, I’ve already studied a masters course in law a few years ago. I’m wanting to study a new masters in population health, is it possible to get funding for this as I thought there were some exemptions to second masters funding ? Many thanks,

Hi there,

What's the name of the course and university you're looking to study the second degree at?

Thanks,

Thanks. How long are the courses? Dietetics can be an Allied Health Profession course which can be exempt from previous study.

Thanks,

Population health which includes epidemiology MSc is 1 year and dietetics is 21 months. I thought population health would also be considered allied health. Many thanks,

Chiropody

Dental hygiene (Honours degree, diploma or foundation degree)

Dental therapy (Honours degree, diploma or foundation degree)

Dental hygiene and dental therapy (Joint or dual honours)

Public Health is not on our list so it would not be exempt. As it's an AHP course it would be funded by undergraduate.

Thanks,

Sorry to ask again, I googled various courses and it’s difficult to know whether funding would apply. Would an MSc in Clinical Mental Health Sciences at ucl qualify. I’m struggling to understand which are exempt

It needs to be in one of the subject areas listed in post #6 to be an exception. As a general rule of thumb, healthcare masters courses that are exceptions are often (but not always) labelled 'pre-registration'.

So the one mentioned above would not be exempt ?

I suspect not but an SFE/SLC re will confirm.

I guess then MSc pre registration in occupational therapy from royal Holloway would be exempt and I could apply for that?

Hi there,

If the course isn't on the list above its not classed as an exception so can't get funding. Occupational Therapy is on the list so should be eligible.

Thanks,
Claire
