    I have applied for student finance for my course (starting Sept 2016). I have previously studied part of a Bachelors but left in 2nd year due to personal reasons. Since then I have completed a part-time HNC over 2 years which was not funded by SFE.

    SFE have said I am not entitled to any tuition loan at all because of this but I thought that I would be eligible for 2 years funding.

    I want to challenge SFE about this but do I have a strong case?


    Your entitlement is based on the amount of years you studied, rather than who funded the course.

    You also wouldn't (with some exceptions) be entitled to funding for anything lower than a HNC, because you already have a qualification at that level.
