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.

It's length of course + 1 - previous years study.

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.
