Hi all,
I’m studying Psychology with a foundation year at Sussex in September and was wondering whether I’ll be entitled to 4 or 5 years funding?
I’ve hear you can get your course length +1 year but I’ve also heard there’s a 4 year limit for normal bachelors degrees.... I would like to know as I’d potentially like to apply for study abroad or a masters year at the end of the course.

There’s no limit. Funding is based on the length of your course. If you’re on a course with a foundation year and a placement year then it’s still length of course plus one year for mistakes.

If you take a masters degree after finishing your undergrad degree then funding is from a separate pot - it doesn’t matter how many funded years you had to get your BA/BSc

This wouldn’t apply for an integrated masters though right?

Hi Ebony,

We fund the original length of your course plus 1 additional year for any repeats/transfers you may have.

This would also be the same for an intergrated masters course. Intergrated masters courses attract undergraduate funding not postgraduate.

Thanks, Chanel
