Hi all,

I am an EU student, and I have got an offer from Oxford.
In order to pay for my tuition fee, I'm going to borrow money from Student Finance England.

I have already studied at two different courses at university at home. The first one I dropped out of because I didn't like the course, and I'm going to quit the second one in order to go to Oxford.

Do you think this will be a problem for me? Of course, I have not borrowed money from Student Finance England before, neither have I in my home country. Any experience/problems?

- Helena

It may depend on whether you already have a qualification from your previous two unis?

I have a couple of exams but I don't wish to transfer them to Oxford. I finished one term at the first university, and a bit more than one term at my current but I don't have any formal degree. I really hope you can help me!

Yes it will be a problem. Your entitlement to funding is length of course plus a year minus any years already had. sFE consider part years as whole years and it is study not finance.
So if you have a 3 year course at oxford your funding will be 3 + 1 - 2 = 2.
You will not get your first year funded at all.

Yes, student finance goes on years studied (part years count as a full year in their eyes) not years funded. You've had two years at university and student finance won't fund those who've done more than one years previous study for a new degree in full. The rule is length of course+1 year - any years previously studied and works backwards. So you can't get any funding for your first year of a new degree, but you can for years after (this is to make sure you don't drop out again).
