    Hello guys,

    i struggle with a problem as I have heard that SAAS pays only for 4 years when currently I got accepted by Edinburgh College to do HNC Social Service and don't know what to do :/ . I already studied using a Student Finance England Loan + maintenance help in London for 2 years foundation degree.( I was paying as a HOME student not EU - been living in the UK for 6 years already=permanent residency)
    One of tutors at the college suggested me "it would be better to pay by myself for HNC and then ask SAAS only when will be applying for Napier Social Science next year."(SAAS told me to make application as an EU student)

    What do you think about it?
    Will SAAS cover HNC and then 4 years of uni?

    Thanks for help
