I want to apply to my local university for an add on year to complete my degree. I received my DipHe in September and would want to start my add on year in September 2017. Would I still be eligible for funding? I read on another web page that I am only eligible if I undertake study within five months of receiving my DipHe.

Hi, I can advise that new regulations for students commence study in 2017/2018 doing on a End on/Top up course would not be required to undertake study within 5 months of receiving DipHe and may only be eligible to to receive a maintenance loan and tuition fee loan. However we would take into account previous study when calculating the entitlement you may be eligible to receive. Our calculation is Duration of New Course + Duration of Previous Course - Previous years studied = Available years of Entitlement. Hope this helps. Thanks
