    hey, I've just completed a foundation year (i failed to do well in my A levels) and i am intending on moving onto a Bsc Biology with a year abroad

    because of the year abroad AND the foundation year, that makes the total years spent in Higher education 5. i've been told that student finance only covers you for 4 years, which would mean paying off one year out of my own pocket

    could anyone give me further details about the whole "only funding 4 years" aspext
    any details regarding payment of a year abroad would also be very much appreciated.

    thank you

    I'm pretty sure you can get funded for all 5 years. My course will end up being 5 years long and I think I get funded.
