    I'm currently in level 1 of a BEng mechanical engineering (with an integrated foundation year) degree, and so my Student Finance agreement is currently for four years - foundation year, level 1, level 2, level 3.

    I've been getting good grades and my university would allow me to switch to the mechanical engineering with a year in industry degree, and it's something I'm very keen to do. However, it means that my 4-year degree would then become 5-years, taking into account the year in industry which would be between level 2 and 3. My question is, would I be able to get Student Finance loans for this extra year?

    I should mention that I also received a 24+ Advanced Learning Loan for a one year Access to Higher Education course I took just before I started university, if that has to be taken into consideration.

    Thanks.

    Hi Frankston

    If you go into a 5 year course it simply means you will have used your gift year if you start from the beginning again. To maintain the same level of support you are currently getting, please ask the university to send us a transfer, if you decide on this route.

    Thanks
