Hiya!I studied for 3 years (all of which were funded by student finance). I did a foundation degree in the first 2 years and a top-up degree which got me a BA honours in my field. I'd like to apply for a masters degree in my field and the minimum requirements Is a 2:1 but I got a 2:2. My question is, if I apply and they come back and say that I need a relevant 2:1 qualification, can I get funding via student finance for a second top up year and for the masters degree, both of which would only last a year each.I'm a little confused as to whether you can get four years of funding undergraduate and a years post graduate or if the four years funding included a post graduate degree like a masters.Thanks!

Hello,

You would not be able to retake your top up year; this would be deemed as having an Equivalent Level Qualification (ELQ).

Is the Masters course, a standalone course?

Thanks, Lynsey.
