    Hi,

    I have recently changed from a full-time Single Honours degree course (I only completed first year) to a Combined Honours degree course where I have to complete first year for the new course I am studying on a part-time basis.

    I intend to complete a PGCE course once I have obtained my degree.

    Would I be able and be entitled to 5 years of student finance (which one of these being part-time)?


    Thanks,

    Matt

    This all depends on personal circumstances, sometimes they do allow this and sometimes they don't.

    I suggest contacting them personally and explaining the different courses, and the reasons then they'll be able to give a more 'specific' answer where they can ask for the information they need in private.

    You get length of course + 1 - previous years study. PGCE is postgraduate and your undergraduate study doesn't count.

    So SF would cover me for all 4 years (incl. 1 year of part-time) of undergraduate study and then 1 year of postgraduate study (PGCE)?
