Hello, I have just completed a HND in ICT and currently have a part time job, the job I applied for asked if I had any business qualifications which are essential to the job I applied for. So, I was wondering if I can get funded to do a HNC in Business (only been funded for 2 years so far) or will it not be accepted due to the fact I have already studied a higher level ?

You ll probably fall foul to the Elq rules.

Hi Diggaa

As you already hold a higher level of qualification, you would not be eligible for funding though Student Finance.

Thanks

I read the ELQ and it says that people are exempt from it if they have a foundation degree , I believe a HND is the equivalent ?

Do you have a link to that please? I've not come across that before. I know you can get funding to top up our foundationdation degree / HND to a honours degree.
