    ok so i need a some good advice and it would be great if i could get other peoples opinions on this, my current situation is that i am 23 years old and ive been to university twice flopped both times because im a ****. But the real issue is that im going to uni this year to study law at city university and basically student finance aren't going to fund me so ive been looking at the scholarships and busary section for city university and theres some requirements for the scholarships for example to get the award you needed to have not studied an undergraduate course before, but in my personal statement city uni don't know about that i flopped 2 unis in my past so im planning to be a bit cheeky and lie and pretend this will be the first time ive ever studied an undergraduate programme, WILL IT WORK? (it ant right but i have to do it because i need the money)

    Depends whether the uni checks your status with SF. Big gamble. If they find that you've lied on your application, you'll probably be thrown out. As for committing fraud to get the bursary - same again, with a demand for full immediate repayment and interest/admin costs on top.

    It's not just "a bit cheeky", it's fraud. Up to you. Are you really that desperate for a degree? (Especially from City). The consequences of being found out could follow you for the rest of your life.

    Savage.

    But I agree with everyone, OP - it's a big risk, and it will hang over you regardless of whether you're eventually caught or not if you do end up spending time there as a student.
