    Hi Mark,

    I have seen a similar question on the forum but I just want to make sure I get the correct details for my specific course.

    I will try and keep it short. Basically I'm doing a 3 year course with (hopefully) a placement which would make it a 4 year course.

    Unfortunately I need to resit some first year modules. If I have to retake the first year, I assume I would get a "gift year" to cover my retake year.

    However, my final year which would technically be my 5th year at university.

    Would Student Finance still support me in my final year, even though I have used the "gift year"?

    Thanks

    Hi there,

    You are entitled to receive funding for the duration of your course, plus one 'gift year' if required.

    If you do undertake a placement year, this means you would be entitled to 4 standard years of funding, plus the additional year.

    This means you would be able to receive student finance for 5 years in total, including your final year.

    Thanks
