I'm trying to figure out how much student finance I can still get.
I originally started university in 2010 but I dropped out after the first year. I am now in my 2nd year at another university and I have a placement job sorted for next year.
I checked when I started this course that SFE will fund you for the length of your course +1 year minus any years you've already used so I will still be funded to the end of my course.
Here's my problem. When I applied for student finance for this university I was registered on a 3 year full time course but I'm now on the 4 year sandwich course with the extra year being on placement. Will I still be able to get funding for the whole course or will I have to pay for the final year myself?
I am also thinking of transferring (again!) to the 5 year masters (which is still part of the undergraduate courses) after placement. Will the student finance continue to extend for that or will I have to pay for that myself?
Sorry for the long post but any help will be appreciated!
...or just paranoid?
