    I was wondering if I am allowed to do any additional accredited courses (eg. Level 4 Diploma in Programming etc.) while I'm studying full time course?

    Maybe it's a silly question, but I know that I won't be eligible for SFE funding if I will gain other higher education qualification. Does it actually apply to short courses as well?

    Foe example: I am studying BSc degree.
    I found a Level 5 Diploma Course in IT on one of the career websites. The course would be self-funded and will give me legitimate qualification. It will take 6 months to complete it.

    Could that affect my SFE entitlement?

    Hi 1993student2017,

    As this course is not funded by Student Finance England and is an on-line course this will not affect your funding through (SFE).

    Thanks
