    I have been making my way through the highly complex Student Finance application form online and came accross a bit which I think said 'course year', and had to select 1,2, or 3, all listed next to the name of my course.
    I selected one because I assumed this means I am applying for finance for my first year. I know that you apply seperately each year, so I guess that next year i would select '2'... ???. I'm worried that it was a mistake to just take a wild guess.

    i got to this stage after entering in what university I was going to and then selecting sociology (3ft) - whatever the 3ft means i dunno - from the list.

    I did click on '3' to see if the description was any different, but it still says the length of my course is 3 years, which is what worries me 'cos I would expect it to say 'one year remaining' or something.


    1 is right for your course year.

    Maybe 3ft means 3 years full time?
