Hi,I have studied in the past (about 5 years ago) 1 year in one uni and 3 years in another. I now want a career change and get into teaching (not sure whether to do PGCE or Early years yet) but need to know if I am eligible for student finance or I would have to fund it myself. Any useful information would be lovely! Thanks

A PGCE is an exception course so you'll be eligible for student finance if you do a PGCE. You won't be eligible for student finance for an undergraduate degree like a BEd.

Thank you for replying this is brilliant news. So if I were to do early years teacher training this would be an undergraduate degree?

If it's a 3 year BEd then it's an undergrad degree but if it's just a 1 year pgce then it's not undergrad and you'll be eligible for student finance
