    Afternoon,

    l have enrolled at my university for BA top up in business admin ( 1 year), having applied for all the finance, l was told this Monday that because the course is the same degree as last years and that it is a ELQ l will not be eligible for funding. l did not complete last years top up course ( this can be confirmed by previous university) so l obtained info before applying and SFE said l am eligible as it falls within a gift year?

    l have rang SFE numerous times, not always recieved the correct reply, but l have been assured that once they can see that i did not complete and obtain a degree, then l will not fall under this ELQ category.

    Can someone please help me with this???

    Hi Joel,

    If there's an indication that you have a ELQ in error, you should send us a letter explaining this, and where possible provide supporting evidence that no qualification was gained.

    We'd then be able to resolve the issue and move things forward.

    Regards,
