Having trouble finding a definitive answer to this one.
I was previously at University in another city where I completed 1 year of the course successfully but used 2 years of student loans.
Fast forward to 2 years later and I want to continue my course at another university.
I'm pretty sure on doing the same course, but what would loans be like if I:
A) did the same course but did the 2nd and 3rd year at the new uni.
B) tried to start the course from scratch at new uni.
C) wanted to do a completely different course
Thanks in advance

You're entitled to;
Length of your degree + 1 year - previous study.
You had 2 years of student loans, which counts of 2 years of study.
So, if you want to study a new 3 year degree, you will be entitled to;
3 years + 1 - 2 = 2. So, you would be entitled to 2 years of full funding.
Student Finance will use these 2 years for the FINAL 2 years of your new degree, so years 2 and 3. You will receive a Maintenance Loan in the first year, but you would have to pay your fee's yourself. In years 2 and 3 you would receive Tuition Fee Loan, Maintenance Loan and Maintenance Grant.
In answer to your scenarios;
A) As it would be 2 years, you would receive one years funding, for the final year.
B & C) You would receive funding for the 2nd and 3rd years of your new degree.
