    Hello there, I am speaking on behalf of my friend.

    He has currently done 2 years of HND at a College and he's supposed to do a top up year (1 year) at a University. Now, he knows he is not ready to pass the top up year, he realises he will fail it.
    Now, can he apply for a full 3 year course at a University? He has used 2 years worth of student loan funding, can he get funded for another 3 years?

    Thank you.

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

    You can't get funding for a lower or equivilant qualicaton. The exceptions to this are nursing and medical courses.
