What if you already have a degree?

Undergraduate level study

The government is encouraging more people to study for a first degree.  Therefore, those students who already have a first degree and want to study for another at the same level may not be entitled to the same level of support or eligible for student loans - it depends what you're studying.  For detailed information see the Student Finance England leaflet on Equivalent Level Qualifications

Postgraduate study

Funding is available via studentships, bursaries, grants and loans and some students get help from their employers. For an overview of sources go to GOV.UK and Prospects.
