    Just enquiring;
    I am currently in the final year of my 2 year HND course, i've received an offer from a university to progress into 1st year of a music degree, but i wasn't offered a place in 2nd year of the degree.
    As i know, SLC only fund 4 years for study, but does this mean i can still progress on and study in 1st and 2nd year of my degree, but fund the 3rd year myself?

    :yes: When it comes to funding, they work backwards.

    SLC fund you for the length of your course + 1 year - previous study.

    I am unsure what the deal is if you have a HND though. I believe this comes under the ELQ rules so you'd probably only get a maintenance loan in year 1 of the new course, then in years 2 and 3 you'd get maintenance loan (+ grant if applicable) + tuition fee loan.

    I suppose this wouldn't be so bad, i mean if im living away from home i may get a fair amount. I guess i'll have to see! Thanks for all your replies!
