I’ve had 2 years of full time funding from SFE and I’m unsure if I can now get part time funding from them otherwise I want be able to afford it. Please help!! Has anyone dealt with this before?? Thanks

    Hi Chloe,

    If you change from Full Time and did not gain a qualification, your previous study will not be counted against you. This will also apply if you entirely self funded and studied at a private institution.

    Thanks

    Thanks, I believe I come out with a certificate in higher education as I have completed the first year. So would I therefore not be able to get part time funding.

    Hi Chloe,

    The part time qualification that you will gain will this be the same qualification you have gained from your full time course or higher?

    Thanks

    From my full time course I have only gained a Certificate in Higher education as I did not complete the bachelors degree.
    I would like to go part time to complete a bachelors degree. So therefore would this be higher??

    Hi Chloe,

    The bachelors degree is a higher qualification therefore if you are studying a higher level than qualification already gained you will be eligible to receive funding for up to a maximum of 16 years part time.

    Thanks
