My course is a foundation year, then 3 years, however I failed last year so I'm taking it again.
Does this mean that Student Finance will stop funding me for my final year?
This is driving me nuts, as I can't afford to fund a year myself.

yes, you only get 4 years.

You're doing the foundation year another time round right this minute? And you're being funded?
In which case, that would suggest you are fine, as which years they fund are actually done backwards (I.e. if you had two years funding left, as just an example, and were doing a three year course, they would fund 3 and 2 and not 1). If you weren't entitled to funding for the full four years you wouldn't have got funding in your foundation.
The length of funding is apparently the length of your original course + 1 extra year. For most people this is 4 because they have 3 year courses, but your original course length is 4 years + 1 extra = 5 years total.Last edited by heidigirl; 12-02-2010 at 20:30.
