    The usual rule is you get finance for the length of your course plus 1 extra year. But definitely ring them up to check!

    Almost certainly, yes. Students are entitled to one additional year of funding (their course length plus an extra year). So if your course is four years long you are entitled to five years. This can be extended further if you have a medical condition or disability which means you will take longer than a non-ill student to complete the degree. But even then there's a limit.

    But, yes, even if you don't have a medical condition or disability you will usually get that additional year. Confirm this with Student Finance.

    If you are repeating on a medical concession you usually won't have to pay tuition fees for the repeated year. But, if you don't have an approved concession, you usually do need to pay (in which case you can take a tuition fee loan).
