Will Student Finance Fully Fund My Course?

    • Thread Starter

    Hey guys,

    I previously studied a foundation course at University however, I failed to complete this degree. A Foundation course is 4 years at university. I know that student finance give you 3 years of financing and 1 year gift year should you fail. Seeing as my course was a 4 year course I have already used up two years of financing. I was unable to participate in retakes as I had personal problems in my life at the time. I was thinking to go back to university for a 3 year course or study a HND course which is a 2 year course with the option of topping up to make this a degree. Would student finance fund my course for the first two years? I'm unemployed and my family don't earn enough to fund my course. What can I do? I would like to go back and finish what I once started.

    Any help would be much appreciated.


    Student finance actually give you:
    Length of course + 1 - previous years study.

    Because of your personal problems, you may qualify for compelling personal reasons, which means that the years funding you've received can be ignored.
