SFE: transfer from a 3yr degree to a Scottish 4yr degree

    • Thread Starter

    Will I receive funding for the full 4 years of my new degree if I transfer after having completed the first year of a 3 year degree?

    SFE provides funding for 4 years if it's needed. If you transfer after the 1st year and go into the 2nd year then you'll get full funding. If you start over then you'll get 3 years but will have to cover the last year yourself.

    While most degrees are 3 year an extra year is given if you decide to switch uni's or if you happen to fail a year and need to repeat it

    I just found this http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2...lation/22/made

    (OD + 1) - PC
    OD is the number of academic years that make up the ordinary duration of the course
    PC is the number of academic years that the student has spent on previous courses

    (4 + 1) - 1 = 4 years
    so I wouldn't actually need to cover the last year myself?

    Just want to double check my understanding of this. Thanks for replying.
