I'm currently a first year student studying English Lit/Education but I plan on changing my course in September '14 to Psychology at the same uni (it has been provisionally accepted by my uni).
I was wondering if I would need to create a whole new application for SFE for my new course or just inform of a change of course on my current one? Also, if I weren't to sit my exams after this Easter holiday whether I would still get my last SFE payment in May, as I was relying on this to see me through paying for my accommodation over the summer holidays in my new student house as we've signed a 12 month contract starting in June. Without the payment, I won't be able to pay it as I have no other income. I'm waiting to see if finishing this year at my university would be beneficial qualification wise as I've heard that you can gain a minor qualification from just doing the first year?

If you are withdrawing from the course that you are on, then we would require a change of circumstances sent through from your university showing the date that you withdrew. Your funding would then be worked out based on the time that you were studying, so if you withdraw before your final payment is due, then you wouldn't receive this.
Due to you starting a new course, although at the same university, once we have received the change of circumstances through from your University to withdraw you from English Lit, you would then need to apply online on a PN1 form as a new student for the new course, Psychology.
In terms of you receiving a minor qualification for the first year of the course, you would need to speak to your university regarding this.
