    Hi there,

    This has been asked a couple of times but the only information I could find was a couple of years old so I thought I'd ask again. It looks like I may want to drop out of the PGCE so I can chase a dream job placement that lasts for 5 months this year which I can only do now, I believe will develop me personally and professionally and is a once in a lifetime chance. This is an incredibly difficult decision to make since becoming a teacher is still my lifelong goal, it's just that this other opportunity can only be taken now.

    I was wondering if I drop out will I still be able to apply for student finance to fund my PGCE in the year 18/19 despite having already partly had it this year. Is it only possible in circumstances of exceptional medical or personal misfortune for example? Or is it even possible to get funded again at all?

    Many thanks,

    Hi Moricatar,

    Based on the Information that you have provided and you do not already hold QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) if you have to repeat your PGCE ,Student Finance would offer full funding.

    Thanks
