Hey,

I’m abit confused. I’m looking to transfer to a new university and restart my degree after one year (which means I’ll technically be repeating a year)

If you repeat a year of your undergraduate degree do you still qualify for postgraduate funding under SFE to do a legal practice course or a masters. Someone told me that if you repeat a year at uni you won’t get funding for a masters course

Undergrad studies don’t affect your eligibility for a postgraduate loan (unless you study an undergrad masters degree).

The PGL is only available for masters degrees- it isn’t available for the lpc.

So how do people get LPC funded?

Savings, family, studying part time while working, sponsorship from employers.

There’s a couple of courses that are a masters degree with LPC making up part of the course that are eligible for a postgraduate loan (but that barely covers the fees so students taking that route still need another source of funding to cover living costs).

The qualifying process for solicitors is changing - it may be that by the time you graduate from your undergraduate degree the LPC doesn’t exist at all in its current form.

Oh wow, thanks for your help and clarification. I actually never knew this. I worked with someone who got funding for their LPC but i just remembered now they did a LLM incorporation or something like that so technically it was a masters degree.

Either way restarting your undergrad degree won’t affect your eligibility for any available postgraduate funding. Make the most of the extra year to get involved with networking opportunities and work experience/placements (or just saving money!).
