So I have this issue right now, where I'm planning on changing to another course, at which I already talked to my current course tutor and applied for course change; it's decided. However I'm not sure how student finance will work on this part, because now it means that I wasted one year of studies and student finance on a course I don't enjoy and plan to change. My question and worry is regarding whether student finance will be able to support me financially for the entry of my new course next year, because it's a 4 years course (including foundation year), or I will only be able to take student finance for another 3 years, because one was already taken? A person told me that there's a cap of 4 years to be loaned from SF, is this true? If so, how shall I resolve this issue? Many thanks in advance.

its a year on top of your original course length generally, so if your orginal course was 3 years then you've 3 years left. You can get funding back if you have compelling personal reasons.

Hey, thanks for the response. So if I have 3 years left of loans remained to get, and my course will be 4 years, I will have to pay for the last year of my studies myself? Or there's another way of getting funding in this case. Also, what kind of compelling personal reasons would get me the funding back for the year I've 'wasted'? Many thanks in advance.

You have to pay the first year of tution yourself. Generally health reasons of some sort.

it's best to call to be fair, but I think the other poster is right. to my knowledge you'd have to pay for the first year of study however not sure how it works with foundation years. I'd give them a call
