    Im currently studying contour fashion at DMU on my first year. I have a full student loan but I want to do contour fashion at the London college of fashion next year (start September 2018) I would have to start on my first year again. Would I still have my student loan? What should I do once I get my place at the new university?

    Hi Cloti_v,

    Let me ask you a few questions to help you better.

    First of all have you had any previous study prior to the course you are currently undertaking ?

    Secondly what is the length of the new course ?

    Finally are you studying full or part time ?

    Thanks Rona

    I finished my Alevels in June and started the fashion contour at dmu this September.The course is a honors degree of 3 years with an optional placement year which would be 4 years. I'm only doing 3.The new course is also 3 years with an optional placement but I will only do the 3 years.

    I do study full time

    Hi Cloti_v,

    Thank you for your reply.

    On the information that you have provided, we would not use the previous study that you have had at A level in the calculation.

    We allow you one additional year of support, should you have to repeat a year of study or change to a different course.

    You can be confident, with only one year of previous study, you will be entitled to full support for the length of your new course,
    but not for any year in the future where you need to repeat, unless you can provide evidence of Compelling Personal Reasons.

    Thanks Rona

    Hi Cloti_v,

    What this means, is that you will continue to receive the same level of support that you are receiving now, both Maintenance and Tuition fee loans.

    If your new course starts in September 2018, you will apply online using your existing login details, when applications available early next year.

    You will either apply as a Continuing or New student.

    If your current university is happy for you to transfer, then apply as a continuing student but enter the new course details and year of study on the application.


    If your current university wishes to withdraw you from your current course, they will send us a withdrawal notification, then you would need apply as a new student and identity and any eligibility evidence will be required again.


    Thanks Rona

    Hi Cloti_v,

    We can't advise you on how to make applications through UCAS. You should check with them whether you need to create a new account.

    And yes, you would continue to use the account you created with us for your funding applications.

    Regards,

    Stuart
