    Theres a lot of disinformation and nasty rumours floating about amongst students and especially here. Ive been looking for information regarding my case ( ie: 2011 reapplicant/detest current course/ applying for a new 3year course) and all I can find is contradictions and conflicting info! Some say you are only guaranteed 3 years, some say as many as you want or need, and others say 3+1. Arghhh!
    What is this 3 years + 1 rule? It How many years of funding are you entitled to if you have already done one year on another course?



    Hoping to get specific answers to clear this one up once and for all. Got the UCAS Media email today.

    The rule is: funding for the length of your course + 1 year - previously funded years.

    So your amount of funding will be: 3 years + 1 year - 1 year so basically 3 years funding remaining.

    It's length of the new course plus one year, minus any years previously in attendance in higher education. This is covered within Paragraphs 20-23 of The Education (Student Support) Regulations. There are variations if you're topping up from a Foundation Degree/HND/HNC/DipHE, but that's the rules.
