I've been wondering about this for a while and I would be grateful if someone could tell me whether student finance will continue to fund me for my circumstance.
I've just completed a foundation year at my university, and now I am progressing to my first year of my chosen degree.
Originally my uni had put me in a aeronautical + foundation year course 'code',even though I applied for mechanical engineering. They did this because after the foundation year I can progress to any engineering course and it was easier to put everyone together- which in my case is mechanical eng.
Therefore, I changed my original to aeronautical + foundation year code on student finance (looking back I probably shouldn't)
now the main issue is this:
I've done 1 foundation year
Now, I've changed my SFE course code to 4 years (sandwich) - mechanical engineering.
So, if I decided to do a master's after this would student finance still fund me.
I heard somewhere the placement year isn't considered as a year of studying. So does that mean I will be funded for my foundation year, 3 years at uni and masters?
Lastly, I heard student finance fund you for 4 years
I would love someone's advice. Thank you.
