How come? I had a HC2 a few years ago and it was valid for the whole year. That was when I was at uni.
Well it's because I graduated last month. The certificate I had at the time ran out on my courses official end date, 8th June (presumably because it's a case of having to re apply as they knew my circumstances would change). But I haven't received all the financial evidence for my funding next year (PGCE) plus my partner is hoping to get a permanent job next month, and we're moving and don't know rent yet, so with all the unknowns I'm having to wait until September ish to reapply. Like said above, in previous years it lasted for a whole year. I'm just hoping the dentist doesn't fall in the next 2 months!
