Funding for a 3rd p/t undergrad degree

Options
HI,
I'd be grateful for any advice.
 I took a student loan out for a degree that I completed in 2006. I then took out a student loan for a part-time degree that I completed last year (a shortage/science subject). Is there anything stopping me receiving funding if I study for a 3rd undergraduate degree part-time in a different shortage/science subject?
(I enjoy studying and I am unlikely to earn enough to pay back the student loans - in case you were wondering).
Thanks.

    So because you enjoy studying the taxpayer should continue to fund your activities/lifestyle - because that all they are - glorifying activities which are no benefit to society.
    You may not want to hear my views, but I am going to give them anyway - what you are doing is stealing from those students who really need these funds to start their career.
    The sooner the government tighten up these rules the better.

    I'm pretty sure that you'll be fine, IIRC there are only restrictions on Postgraduate loans. Good luck with your studies.

    There is no maximum number of student loans issued in any one academic year so, despite your wonderfully emotive language, no-one is stealing anything from anyone.

    If it's Student Finance (Student Loan) it'll depend where you live - I know England Scotland and Wales are slightly different. There does seem to be more funding for STEM subjects, so might be worth speaking to 1) Student Finance and 2) the University you plan to study with as they may have other funding available.
