There are some variations in funding across the UK so the guides are specifically for healthcare related courses at Cardiff University. Funding for these courses is applicable to Home UK students.
All NHS funded courses

Part-time BSc Occupational Therapy
All NHS Funded Students with children, a spouse or partner
Pharmacology, Optometry and Pharmacy
Pharmacology, Optometry and Pharmacy are funded via the Student Loans system so our Undergraduate Funding page would be applicable for these courses
Previous study in Higher Education, including the completion of a first degree, does not currently affect eligibility to apply for NHS funding. As yet there has not been any announcement that this will change for students starting in September 2012. However, if you are offered a non NHS funded place on your course your eligibility for funding via the Student Loans system is affected by previous study.
An Emergency Loan from University Funds may be able to help when something unforeseen has happened (eg your funding is late) and you when you cannot get financial help from any other source. Please read the factsheet below for further information:
