Fees - what if you already have a university qualification?
If you already have a university qualification and you are thinking of doing another at the same level, you will not be eligible for Government support, either as a loan, a grant or a bursary.
This policy applies across all universities in England (not just Birkbeck).
So if you are a UK or an EU national and you already have a undergraduate qualification (or equivalent), such as a BA/BSc degree and you wish to study for another one at the same or a lower level, you will be required to pay fees yourself.
Please note: if you are not eligible for government support for fees, you may still be eligible for the Disabled Students’ Allowance.
