Student Finance After an Apprenticeship? Watch
After going to sixth form, I decided that I wasn't ready for university and so I managed to find a Level 4 apprenticeship (CIMA Management Accounting) starting in September 2014. I completed about two months ago and have yet to receive the certificate but they have told me I passed. This was with BPP.
I'm now thinking I'd like to do a degree in a different subject (from what I've read, I can possibly do a top up degree in Finance with my apprenticeship qual but would rather not) but I'm not sure of the amount of funding I'd be able to get through Student Finance? Nobody ever mentioned to me at the start whether it would affect my ability to go on to a degree and there doesn't seem to be many other people with this issue...
Any help appreciated.
What type of qualification did you gain when you done your apprenticeship?
For your top-up degree you will be eligible to apply for full funding you will to make a new students application on your online account or by completing a PN1 form.
My query was the funding situation if I did a separate degree from scratch rather than a top up but I appreciate the confirmation in case I do decide on the top up course.
How long would your new course be? and is it part time or full time that your going to be studying?
If your looking to study full time your previous study will be counted depending how many years you studied previously before, for your part time study you will be eligible for the tuition fee loan and the disability allowance.
