    I started an undergradute degree which is a 4 year course. The first year is a foundation year and the three subsequent years are the three years for a BEng degree.

    In order to pass said foundation year and pass onto the main 3 year BEng degree you have to obtain a certain % on the foundation year.

    I did not achieve the percentage I required to progress onto my chosen engineering degree. This was due to mitigating circumstances and due to said circusmatnces I was allowed to repeat the foundation year.

    I did so and I am now in first year.

    I have applied for student finance and I recieved an entitlement of £0 I told my student finance deparment and they said they have notified student finance of the year I am in and after this is taken into consideration I should receieve student finance. They said I "hopefully" should which isn't very reassuring.

    Is this the case according to the rules will I receieve student finance for the remainder of my degree 100% guaranteed?

    Thank you

    You are eligible for funding as 'course plus one'. If you are enrolled on the 4 year version of the course this is 4 years plus 1 year = 5 years (i.e. 5 years funding).

    This allows a repeat year during the course. If you have taken 2 years funding to complete the foundation, you should still have 3 years left (i.e. year 1, 2 and 3).

    Make sure your University has you on the 4 year version of the course and not the 3 year version.
