2nd Degree - not funded for 1st year

I was hoping someone may be able to help me.
I am looking to study Osteopathy in Wales (staying home)
I left education 10 years ago after receiving a HND for 2 years
I started researching what grants/loans I would be eligible for with student finance Wales and have recently found out that due to my previous education in 2010, I wouldn’t be eligible for my first years tuition fees which would cover £9,000.
I work part time at the moment and my husband full time and have no resources to gain that money
I was wondering if you had any advice or information on student grants or bursary’s I may be entitled to? 
I am so disappointed that I would not be able to further my study’s to persue my career in osteopathy. Hoping I can find an alternative route to gain my first year tuition fees
