    Hello, I am currently enrolled at University and am in my first year studying Geography with International Relations. However, I have applied on UCAS to study Midwifery at different universities, starting at first year all over again.

    I am planning on continuing to the end of the first year on my current course (Geography w/ IR) and then if I am successful in my applications I will change at the end of first year to the new course at the new uni. Is this possible?

    How will this affect my student finance? Will I still be entitled to 3 years of my loan/grant/bursary? Will I be allowed to do this- continuing at my current course in case I am rejected from my chosen new course? Will this cause problems when applying for funding on the new course if I am still on the old course?

    Hi there.

    When making your application for the coming year, you would simply need to advise us of the course you are now going to do, whether that be the midwifery or your current course. Midwifery is an NHS course so your previous study does not count towards your entitlement and you can still have funding from us.

    NHS courses attract a reduced rate of loan from ourselves only, as you will have your fees and a bursary awarded by the NHS themselves.

    It's best to continue on your current course if possible as if you leave during the year a portion of your award may go into over-payment as we would have given you funding that you were no longer entitled to if you left.

    Thanks
