I am unsure on how the new system on finance works. I have been torn between 2 unis for ages and whilst I have finally made my mind up on which one I am going to I am unclear about the answer to some circumstances. For example if I go to this university and decide I don't like it after one year and drop out to go to a different university to do a different degree, can I still get funded for it?

You are entitled to one 'grace' year, so you can repeat a year once during your time as a student or use it for a 4yr sandwich course.
Use it wisely though because you don't know what will happen in the future.

Isn't it the case that you're notionally entitled to 4 years, because some degrees are that long, such that this 'grace year' obtains for people on 3 year courses?

You are right of course you are still entitled to a grace year even if your course is 4 yrs, I don't know why I even included that not particularly relevant to the discussion any way? Doh, not thinking before posting again.

I feel like you're trying to mould me in to a better poster? Ha.

this is the bit I was querying. I don't know that it's wrong, but I'm not sure that it's right.

Someone showed me the equation SFE use for the grace year the other day but I remembered it wrong it is:
Total number of years in new course - (minus) number of previously funded years + (Plus) one grace year.

As far as I'm aware you are right and they do fund four year degrees in their own right so it shouldn't affect this equation.

Thanks guys all I wanted to know is if after 1 year I decided I made the wrong decision and want to go to the other option if I could still get funded for it and if I can that takes a huge load off my mind.
