    I've done an HNC and im now a month or two into my HND in Computing & Systems development. I was told by my college the teaching would be far better in the HND than Uni, but i'm quickly finding out the teaching is garbage and i'm learning nothing. I'm really trying to learn and concentrate but I can't pick up anything , the modules are trash and my college's fund cutting means we barely get any lessons a week. I've learned basically nothing and I don't think anyone else in my class has learned much in the past two years.

    After this year, I would have got 2 years student finance. I'm 19 and a UK resident.

    I really want to learn properly and come out with a good degree, so I was thinking i'll use the rest of this year to prepare myself for uni (doing my driving test and saving up money) because my course won't be that hard to pass, and then I want to start a CSU degree (sandwich course).

    Will I be able to get funding for this? My sister has done several years at uni, she did one year in French, then 3 in International relations and now she's doing a post-graduate law degree, so am I entitled to start my CSU degree after this year? Will Student finance pay me for all 3 academic years?

    Hiya:hi:

    Just to let you know that I've requested for this thread to be moved into the right forum for you.

    I'm really not an expert on student finance but wanted to give this thread a :bump: so that you'll get the replies you're after as top of the list when this is moved over.
