Eligible for finance, even partial? Watch

    Hey guys ,

    A couple of years ago I finished a 2 year foundation degree in computer games programming. To be honest, my grade wasn't as high as I would have liked, partially because I did not study hard enough and also because I had lost interest in the course.

    Recently I have really wanted to go back and redo my degree to get a higher grade and also do the top-up to make it a full honours degree.

    Looking online, I can't seem to find an answer to whether or not I would receive funding or even partial funding from student finance if I were to redo my foundation.

    Does anyone know if it is possible to get any funding for this?

    Don't think you can redo what you've done to get a higher grade. But yes, you are certainly entitled to get your foundation degree topped up.

    Hi, If you already hold a qualification, you will not be eligible for funding for study at an equivalent or a lower level. If going to commence a higher level qualification course, your previous study would be taken into account and could effect the entitlement you may receive. Thanks
