    Hi guys, im gonna be starting a teacher training course to study maths in Sept, I was wondering if I would be able to get student finance to help cover the tuition fees I have to pay, I would receive a bursary but my fees are still 9k.
    The only issue I see is that I've already done 4 years of university as I changed course before.
    Would I still get student finance?

    Depends on the course I suspect. Exactly which qualification will you be studying? If it's a PGCE then that is funded separately to your previous Student Finance and won't be affected by anything you've had before.

    It will likely be a school direct (unsalaried) so the tuition fees version

    There's no extra funding for that as far as I know.

    Might be worth trying to swap to a PGCE, as you would get both a Tuition Fee Loan and a Maintenance Loan.

    I already work at the school that offered me the place as a TA, and they've offered me the school direct unsalaried route after I asked, are you sure it doesn't apply to school direct tuition fees? Cause I'm pretty sure it's the exact same fee as a university led pgce.

    I know for definite that I'd be able to get the 25k bursary

    25k is a good deal more than you'd get from SF. Even paying 9k tuition fees from it, you're still left with about 5k more than a maximum SF Maintenance Loan. It's a pretty generous sum.

    You're right, but I'm just comparing it to what I've been offered already, the school I'm at can offer me either a salaried route or an unsalaried route, the way I see it is if I can get a Tuition fee loan then it's no question which option I should choose.

    If I can't get the tuition loan then the salaried option would be better for me as I'd get a 22k salary and wouldn't have to pay a tuition fee

    So you will get an SF Tuition Fee Loan *and* a 25k bursary to cover living costs. Sweet!
