    Hi, I'm changing my course (Bsc Geography with a Foundation Year) at university but I won't be able to get onto the new course until the Sept 2018 intake. Which means I'll have to withdraw until then because the foundation modules I'm doing are non transferable and don't relate to English (which is what I want to do).

    I'm wanting to find out about what happens to the finance side of things. How much would I have to repay? What if I can't afford to pay back the full amount in one go? Will I get funding if I reapply next year? (Just to note I have a child so I recieved the Parents Allowance too)

    Thanks

    Hi CloverBrownie,

    Just a few questions to help you better, is your Geography course, your first year of study or have you had any previous study prior ?

    Thanks Rona

    Hi CloverBrownie,

    That's fine, we give you an additional year of support incase of these situations.

    You can be confident that you will receive full support for the length of your new course, but not if you have to repeat any year in the future, without mitigating circumstances.

    Regards Rona
