Can I get teaching funded if I've already used all of my student finance?

    I'm just about to go in to my final year of a 4 year long course. However, I had to repeat the first year due to exceptional circumstances meaning in total I've had 5 years of funding and as far as I can make out, the total student finance is the length of your course plus 1 year.

    I have became interested in the prospect of teaching which initially I wasn't interested in. Will student finance fund a year of teacher training in my circumstances? Or is it funded by some one else?


    PGCE is a separate course, therefore, the funding is separate and doesn't count towards the previous years / calculation.
