Hi guys, was wondering if you could clear up a few doubts I have regarding student finance.

A couple of years a go I attended Bournemouth University doing a 4 year course (1st, 2nd & 4th Studying whilst 3rd being a 40 week placement) Now I dropped out shortly after the 2nd year after seeing that the course was not for me and im looking to go back to study a different course at a different university next year. My understanding is that you get finance for the length of your course plus a bonus year. Does this mean I get finance for 5 years minus the 2 that I previously used. If so will I be eligible for funding for a course that lasts 3 years? I dont know how all this works and was hoping you could help me out.

Thanks for your time!

Your right that you get finance for the length of a course + 1 year- the 2 years already used. This works backwards. It means you can't get full finance for the first year of a new course. If you wanted to do a 3 year course you'll get finance for the last 2 years.

Shortly after the second year.
DID YOU START YEAR 3?

If you did, even for a day, SFE will consider you to have had 3 years funding.
