is it really true that SLC will only cover up to four years of study and if I have studied at a non-UK university for two years(which two years I DO NOT want to be recognized by the UK university I want to apply to, so it's as if I didn't even take them as far as the UK is concerned) SLC will only cover two years of my studies at the UK (the last two)?
Also, hypothetically, what's to stop me from NOT declaring those two years, in order to receive full SLC aid? I wouldn't mind not declaring them, because they are not related to the study I want to pursue in the UK and I don't want them to be recognized by the university I will apply for.

All previous study from anywhere in the world is taken into consideration and can affect entitlement to Student Finance. If a qualification is deemed to be the equivalent or higher level to a course a student is applying for then standard Previous Study and Equivelent level qualifications rules will apply.
We may ask you to send evidence of your previous study. It may be considered fraudulent not to declare them.
