    I am currently in my first year at MMU studying English and Philosophy however because I was not enjoying it I've been allowed to transfer onto a different course which is Hospitality Management, which can either be done in 3 years or 4 years as a sandwich course.

    I would really like to do the sandwich course however I understand that you are only given 4 years of funing and I've already used up 1.

    So my question is how is a placement year funded? Does it still require tuition fees? Or do you not need to be funded for this year as the placement is usually paid?

    Thanks in advance.

    Rightio in terms of this 4 year thing, someone's over simplified it for you. What you're entitled to is

    the length of your (new) course + one year - any previous years of support

    If you do a sandwich course, you can see that your entitlement to funding years grows alongside the course length. If you did a year on another course, you'd get full funding whatever you choose.

    Whether your uni charge fees is up to them, many do but at a reduced rate. You'd need to contact the uni and ask. You would be entitled to a fee loan if they did.
