Hi there, I'm just really confused at the moment and need some advice.

Long story short, I was originally on a 4 year course at my previous uni that I have left, which means that I would have the funding of 4 years + 1 year= 5 years of funding in total. I am now looking to move onto a new course but have been told to start from year 1?

Because student finance is Length of new course + one additional year – years of previous study = Total Funding

Which in my case would be 4 Years + 1 Year - 2 Years = 3 Years

Am I correct that I would have enough funding to cover the new course?

Hi there,
You are correct that the calculation is Length of new course + one additional year - previous years of study.

You state you have 2 years of previous study, did you leave during the 2nd year of the course or the 3rd year of the course because if you studied even a few weeks of the 3rd year then it will still be classed as a previous year of study.

If your new course is 4 years long as you only have 2 years of previous study then it is correct you should have 3 years of funding which means you will need to self fund the first year of your new course unless you have Compelling Personal Reasons and can provide evidence.

If the new course is 3 years long then the calculation is 3+1-2 = 2 years of funding. You will need to self fund the first year of the course unless you can provide Compelling Personal Reasons evidence.
Thanks, Isaac.

Thanks, Isaac.
Even though my previous course was 4 years long? Because I though it would be 4+1-2=3 Years of funding left and I was wondering if the 3 years left can be used towards the new course?

Thank You

Hi,

We wouldn't take the previous course length in to consideration. If your new course is three years long the calculation would be 3+1-2 = 2 years of full funding remaining. What was the reason for you leaving your previous course during the 2nd year?

Regards, Duncan
