applying for a tuition fee loan - what counts as a qualification? watch

    • Thread Starter


    I am a Swedish student applying for the tuition fee loan by SLC, as I am to study in the UK fall 2010. I have a brief question concerning the form-filling:

    what does qualification mean (as in 'did you achieve a qualification?') ? is it a degree (for example BA, MA) or could it be just that you completed and passed a course you took?

    My situation is that I studied medicine for half a year, and then interrupted my studies. Thus I did not get an MB, but I completed and passed the courses I took and I recieved grades in them. Is this a case of achieveing a qualification?

    I would be very grateful if someone could help me. Thanks!

    A qualification is something like a BA, MA, GCSE, A-Level etc. If you discontinued your studies halfway through your degree then I don't think you will have obtained a qualification, else I'm sure you'd know about it!

    You will havw been considered to have had a year of university.
