Most courses are 3 years long, some 4+. So I’m unsure about how many years SFE can fund you. For example, if you did a 5 year medical course, could you get funding for the full 5 years or would it be only for a certain number of them? I know that you can apply for an NHS bursary in your final year of medical school, so would SFE fund the first 4 years and then NHS bursary for the 5th year or no?

SFE will fund the full length of any degree course (including 5 or 6 year degrees).

Thank you for your reply. Are you sure? I’m just confused as I can’t see anything regarding the length on the gov website, but I got scared because I know people who have done a 3 year course in something and got funding, and then have gone back to do another degree and SFE won’t fund them. So I assumed it was because of a 3 year funding cap. Or is this because they aren’t eligible for finance if they’ve already done a degree?

There’s no funding for a second qualification at the same or lower level to what you hold (with some exceptions). And if you take a 3 year course then funding will not cover unlimited repeat years.
