I have applied for a Level 3 Extended Diploma course at a college, but was told that I would need to fund the course myself, despite being under 19, due to completing another Level 3 course (A-Levels). Is this true? I can only find information stating that all FE courses are funded by the government for under 19s.

I’ve known people to do both for free before e.g. after a year of a levels they decide they’re not for them and do a college course for 2 years. You can have a number of loans. More info here, I hope this helps:
