PGCE Funding special circumstance watch

    • Thread Starter


    I left a course half way in 2013 due to extenuating medical circumstances. I deferred a few times until I eventually left. I started a new degree in 2014 and was awarded a further 3 years of funding for my new degree which I am due to complete in 2017. I know that there is a maximum of 4 years funding that can be awarded in normal circumstances. If I were to apply for a PGCE would I be eligible for further funding based on my background?

    I hope you are able to help.

    Thank you.

    Hi Aimes_14

    A PGCE course is classed as an exception course and you will be able to apply for funding for this regardless if you have used your years of previous study.
