    Student Loan for fees 2nd degree in healthcare 15th Sep 17 at 8:51 PM
    We keep getting mixed messages from SLC. Basically the degree I want to do is my second degree and in occupational therapy as I am hoping to progress my career. Apparently I am not entitled to tuition fee loan as I already have a degree even though it's a healthcare course however the government student finance page suggests I should. Please can anyone answer our prayers ! Kind regards.

    I know nothing about this, however....

    Have you applied for the degree and been accepted? I've worked with lecturers for healthcare courses, including OTs, as I've provided placements for students. I've always found the ones I've met very enthusiastic and helpful to their students.

    I'd approach them and ask. I'd expect them to know about sources of funding and how to apply.
