I have undertaken 2 years of a 3-year FdSc Veterinary Nursing degree and was about to go into my 3rd and final year in Sept 2013. As part of my course I had to undertake a work placement within a veterinary practice, however due to funding cuts in October at the practice at which I worked they were no longer able to employ nursing students and I lost my placement.
Veterinary nursing placements are in really short supply in the West Midlands at the moment and as a result my university recommended that I transfer courses from the third year of Veterinary Nursing to the third year of Animal Science.
However, Animal Science is a 4-year course and I'm worried about funding since I originally only applied for funding for a 3-year course.
I have already had a year's funding in 2009 when I undertook a year at a London university before I had to drop out due to financial problems.
As it was on my university's own recommendation that I transfer to a longer course, will I receive funding for the extra year?
Will be grateful for any advice :-)

Are you completing your third year in your initial degree then transferring, or will you be transferring now?
