I know this has been asked before, but just wondering how it will work for me in my position because there is so much confusing advice around!
I am a mature student and studied a diploma at my local college and had to apply for SF for the course alone (£2,880). I then applied to uni and I'm doing a 2 year degree (just about to start my 2nd and final year) so 2 years worth of uni fees and maintenance etc. Next year - Sep 17, I want to do a PGCE. Will SF cover me for this? Some things I've read say yes because it's for teaching, but some say no because they only cover for 3 years now.
How long can I get student finance for? Watch

You get length of course + 1 - previous years study. Because your PGCE and undergrad are separate courses, the formula doesn't count for the PGCE.
