If you drop out after 1st year, what is your funding for the rest of the degree like?

Also, if you then do a masters on top, do you get funding?

Student finance is available for four years, in case of a circumstance change. If you drop out after 1st year you will still be able to complete a 3 year degree with funding.

Masters Funding is a different loan and is not connected to the Undergraduate loan, so it is possible to do a 4 year degree and have funding for a Postgraduate course.

If you need anymore information, let me know!

Thank you. So if i did 1 year of a degree but then switched to another 4 year degree (due to year abroad/ placement year) I would have to fund 1 of those years. I believe placement years are only a small % of the tuition fee, so is that the one I would have to fund myself? Or would i have to fund a full £9250? thanks

Yes, you would have to fund one of the 4 years. As you said, a placement year is usually a smaller fee than a regular year. For example, at Winchester a sandwich year is £700, the only thing to consider as well would be the lack of a loan. So you will need to consider living costs as well, though most placement years should be paying you enough to live comfortably.
