Could you please advise. If at the end of a degree a module is failed and the Uni says that it needs to be resat and the course taken again in order to graduate with an honours degree, is it possible to get student finance to cover the fees and any living costs. It is only one module that needs to be resat.
Many thanks for any help.

Hi shropshirelass51

If this your first resit every student is given four years of study and this is a including a repeat year, as long as you don't have any previous study then you can reapply for your repeat year and will be awarded full funds.

Thanks Miriam

Hi Miriam,
Many thanks. I am asking on behalf of my son and he stay at home as his Uni is 100 miles away. It is only one module that needs to be resat though, this is what it said


"You have insufficient credit to be awarded an honours degree.
You can choose to retake your failed module(s) to complete your honours degree.

As you will be studying 89 credits or less you will be classed as studying on a part-time mode of attendance and will be charged the pro-rata part-time tuition fee; this is estimated to be £1500. Your fee will be confirmed when you re-enrol.

It says that it is compulsory to attend the lessons.

Would your advice still apply?

Thank you so much

Hi shropshirelass51

If the university are going to be requesting fees of £1500 he can still apply for this amount if the university are requesting for it .

Thank you. Can he still get a maintenance loan as he has to pay rent and post for living costs and still has to attend Uni as they say attendance is compulsory. He has only had three years of student finance.

Hi shropshirelass51

If he is still applying as a full time student and it's his first repeat he will get full support.

However if he has to apply as a part time student he would only be eligible for the tuition fee loan only.

Thanks Miriam

Thank you, so I'm guessing it just depends what status the University puts on the form to student finance? He's receiving mixed messages about this

Hi Shropshirelass51


If the university are still classing it as a full time course on a part time basis then he just makes a returning students application as normal which means he will receive his full support then the university would just send a electronic COC confirming the hours he will studying for.

Thanks Miriam

HI Miriam
Following on from our conversation my son has just received an email which states "You will be classed as a part time student studying 20 credits on a full time course. You will be on the full time version of the course"

Does this mean he will be eligible for student finance for maintenance loan or not?

Thanks for your help, really appreciate it

Hi shropshirelass51

Yes he would still get the full time support as the course is a full time course but just studying on a part time basis.

Thanks Miriam

Hi Amanda,

Have you been asked by your university to complete a module or a year? Is this your first course at higher education level and have you repeated any other years?

Thanks, Tégan

Hi,
My son did get a whole extra year of student finance and his fees paid which wre only £1500 as he only had to redo one module. He had to retake the module to complete his honours. Previously, he had only had funding for three years so the extra module and years funding counted as his gift year, if I understand it right. He now has a good job so resitting paid off for him.
Good luck Miriam

Hello Amanda,

The rule regarding previous study states that students are entitled to the ordinary duration of their course plus 1 additional year, minus any previous study, for e.g. 3+1-1= 3 years remaining entitlement.
New Course + Additional Year (awarded for possible repeats or transfers) – Previous Study= Entitlement

If you’ve not used your additional year, you should be fine for support.

Thanks, Lynsey.
