    Hey. I am a student at cu coventry doing a foundation year in engineering. I recently tried to get the application form for the electronic engineering degree at coventry uni to start in September 2018 of the academic year 2018/19 but I was told by the admissions office that student finance won't fund my 1st year of the degree if it started in september 2018 since I started my foundation in January 2018. Is this true? Even though it says 2017/18 on my student finance profile and my foundation year being integrated? I'm confused and I need your help asap. Thanks.

    Hi 060723,

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

    First of all you mention that you are currently on a one year, Foundation Year that is a January start, when does this course end ?

    Can you confirm are you studying a standalone Foundation Course (usually 1 year in length) and now looking to apply for year one of a new three year course starting September 2018?

    or

    Are you year zero, an integrated foundation year of a four year Electronic Engineering course and returning as a continuing student on same course ?

    Thanks Rona

    Hey Rona

    -my foundation year finishes in july I hoped to start my degree in September.
    - I believe my foundation year to be integrated for the following reasons:
    -My uni will automatic enrol my onto a combined engineering degree if I pass my foundation year. But if I do better than a pass then I can instead chose to go for mechanical or electronic engineering.
    -i have applied as a year 0 on my student finance application form and since I got granted funding my uni must have confirmed it to be a year 0.
    -if it was standalone I wouldn't be eligible for student finance but since I have been awarded finance it can't be standalone.

    Hope you can help. Thanks.
