Hi , years ago I had student funding for an undergraduate degree but dropped out in my 2nd year. A few years later I completed a 2 year foundation degree which was self-funded and would now like to do a distant learning top-up degree course for 1 year which will turn my qualification into a BA degree. My question is will I be able to receive student finance for this course or is the calculation the same as if it were an undergraduate degree.

Thank you

Hi there,

Based on the information you have provided, you would not be entitled to the Tuition Fee Loan for a top up course, as we do need to take in to account self funded previous study as well as years you have received student finance.

Are there any compelling personal reasons as to why you had to drop out of your previous course?

Thanks, Ashley.
