    Hi, as a mature student i've been offered a place doing a Geology degree with a foundation year,but what i want to know is if i completed the foundation year and then decided i needed to return to work for a year or two with a view to returning and completing the other 3 years at some point in the future would that be allowed? And would it effect any student finance i'd be entitled to in any way?

    Cheers!

    Your student finance wouldn't be affected.

    You would need to check with the uni if gaps are allowed. Usually they would be, as long as it's not an excessive gap - one year should be fine, but more than two or three could be considered as too long.
