    How would student finance work if I was to restart uni at a different place doing a different course?
    Would I be entitled to anything?

    Hi ImNicerThanYou,

    Firstly, can you confirm how may years of study that you have previously undertaken and what is the name of the new course and university that you now wish to study at ?


    Thanks

    Hi ImNicerThanYou,

    When calculating Student Finance, we take the length of your new course, plus 1 additional year, minus any previous years of study. This means that you would be fully funded for the new course but if you had to repeat a year you wouldn't get the tuition fee loan.

    To give you an example, if the new course is 3 years long, the calculation would be:

    New course (3)+1-previous study (1)= 3 years of funding for the new course.

    I hope this information helps.

    Kind regards,

    John.

    Hi ImNicerThanYou,

    It would depend on if the placement year was included in the course structure. If you were on a course that included a placement year you would be able to be funded for the full course including the placement year.

    Kind regards,

    John.

    Hi ImNicerThanYou,

    There are different types of funding depending on which postgraduate course you wish to study and the level of qualification that you will gain

    Is it something in particular you would like to do after you gain your degree?

    Thanks Rona

    Hi ImNicerThanYou,

    Will you be doing the masters after your undergraduate course?

    What masters course will you be doing?

    How long will the course last?

    Thanks

    If i were to do a masters, it would be after the undergraduate. The masters would be some form of biology ie- biomedical science, biochemistry. I am planning to transfer to a different uni, to either start at year 1 or continue into year2

    Hi ImNicerThanYou,

    After you gain your degree you can be confident that you can still apply for a Postgraduate Loan to undertake a Masters qualification.

    I can only advise you on the support available currently, you can check on the gov website nearer the time you wish to study. Here is a link,

    http://bit.ly/2C5w9x8

    Postgraduate Loans (PGL) are:
    • non-means tested
    • paid directly to the student
    • a contribution towards total costs (can be used for fees or maintenance at the students discretion)


    • 2018/19AY - £10,609 over the duration of the course

    Thanks Rona
