    Hi
    I have been on an undergraduate psychology degree for the last 3 years. I failed the final year due to health problems and will need to retake it. However it would be in my best interests to not repeat it this coming year but to take a year out to concentrate on rehabilitation (I suffered a painful back injury).

    I am aware that SFE fund the length of the course +1 year but I am wondering if that year needs to be successive or if it can be a year further in the future?

    Many thanks in advance for any help.

    Hi Sofi,

    The year does not need to be consecutive. You can apply for finance when you wish to retake your 3rd year. The calculation that will be used will be:

    The ordinary duration of the course you are on + 1 gift year - the years you have previously studied.

    So for example if your psychology course is 3 years the calculation would be 3+1-3=1, this would mean you still have another year of funding to repeat your 3rd year.

    Thanks!
