I'm looking at the opportunity to go to university next year but I'm wondering if I'd be able to be covered by student finance, I did a 2 year course that finished last July and I'm wondering if student finance would now cover me to do a 3 year full time undergraduate course next year.
Does anyone have any advice or information regarding this subject?
Many thanks in advance.

There are two potential scenarios.
1) You got a qualification from your previous course
Depends what type of qualification you already have, if you have one. You can't get funding for a qualification equivalent to or lower than one you already have. For example, if your previous course gave you a uni-level qualification, you may not be able to get funding for the first/second year of a degree.
2) You didn't get a qualification from your previous course
If you *didn't* get a qualification from your last course, you can calculate your remaining SF entitlement with the equation:
Number of years of new course (minus) Number of years of previous uni-level study (plus) One year
Based on what you've told us that would give you 3-2+1=2 years, so you would have funding for the second and third years of a degree, but you would have to fund the first year (including tuition fees) yourself.

Is your new course NHS funded?
