    Hi there.

    We wouldn't be able to fund your for a course of the same level if you gained a qualification previously.

    If you didn't, we wouldn't be able to fund you for all years of a new course due to previous study, and for the first 2 years of a new course you would get a maintenance loan only.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for your response. What I am essentially asking is would I be able to get a maintenance loan now. My course was never funded by yourselves as I qualified then for a grant from the local education authority.i did take a maintenance loan then and still owe some

    Hi there.

    Only if you didn't get the same type of qualification, and even if you didn't, you still couldn't get full funding based on the fact you've previously studied already.

    For students who cannot get funding due to previous study you will get a maintenance loan and supplementary grants such as childcare and disabled students allowance only.

    For those who have an equivalent qualification it would be supplementary grants only.

    This is regardless of outstanding loans.

    Thanks.
