    Okay so there are a lot of threads about similar things but i can't find the exact answer...

    I am looking to change university to complete another undergraduate course after completing my first year at my current university. However, I want to do a PGCE afterwards and wondered whether I would receive funding?

    1 Year on one course
    Change Course
    Complete 3 Years Undergrad
    PGCE

    Can anyone help? Thanks in advance

    Probably. I did a 4 year undergraduate and still got funding. If I remember correctly, they treat it as a whole new course?

    If your going for postgraduate certificate in education. You can get student finance as it's a teacher training degree.

    I was about to make a thread asking the same thing, seeing as I did a year at other uni before starting my current three year, and I had heard student finance only gives four years worth (or your degree + one year safety net). I am wanting to do a PGCE so won't be able to if that is the case.

    Hello Both, the "four year" rule doesn't really exist, it is length of course plus 1 year (assuming no compelling personal reasons). So for a traditional bachelors this is 3+1. However with the PGCE, your course is effectively 4 years long. Therefore you get 4+1 years funding. You're still allowed your 1st year somewhere else as a false start and you will be entitled to the same funding as everyone else.

    Best of luck with the teaching!
