    Hello,
    I would really appreciate it if somebody cares to explain me how the course transfer work.


    Applying for a Meng 4 year course
    Transfer to a different course (also 4 year long) after the first year

    Will Student finance allow to take tuition fees loan? or you have to pay from your pocket for the fifths year?

    you can have funding for the length of your course plus a year - so you will be fine.

    So if I applied for a 4 year course that means I can get funding for 5 years ?
    Another question, If I started one course in 2011/2012 entry with the old fees system and then transfer to another course after a year will I be affected by the new fees?

    1st year - 2011/2012 entry - fees £3300
    transfer
    1st year onwards 9k fees or still 3k ?

    I think so cause you will start on year one on a different course- so you will be considered as a new student

    different issue. The entitlement regs are for people dropping out.
    If you stop after next year and start a new course you will definitely pay the new tuition fees.

    What about the student finance, will I be able to get loans for the duration of the new coarse?

    As long as you've only ever had 1 year of funding.
