    Hi Kirsty,

    Can you please confirm the details of the foundation degree that you are currently studying?. You have also advised that you will be studying a further 2 years of a social work degree, can you advised if you will be entering 2nd year of a social work degree or will you be completing a top up year after your foundation degree?



    Thanks

    Louise

    Hi Kirsty,

    It seems that the course that you will be studying after your foundation degree is classed as and end on course. As long as you will not be changing your mode of study and will be completing the course directly after your foundation degree.
    Based that you will be entering the 2nd year of the 3 year course you would receive full funding from Student Finance and the funding you can receive as a Social Work student will depend both on where you have chosen to study and the Awards Authority that provides the funding.

    Thanks
    Louise
