Hi Jodie, how many previous years of study do you have in total? Do you have any higher education qualification?
Thanks, Isaac

I was doing a FD course, completed year one at level 4. Did not complete the second year at level 5 due to some family issues.

In that case you have 2 years of previous study, with no qualification gained.
The calculation we use to work out your entitlement in - length of new course + one additional year - previous study = entitlement.

For a one year HND course your calculation will be 1+1-2=0 years of funding
If you have Compelling Personal Reasons http://ow.ly/MsMM30pjjO then you could send in evidence to apply for the tuition fee loan.
Thanks, Isaac

Is it 2 years or is it 1 year HNC and then one year HND? Usually it's 1 year then 1 year to complete both. A HNC is a level 4 qualification so you wouldn't be eligible for funding to study a HNC. A HND is a level 5 qualification so you could apply for funding for the HND.

For the one year HND you won't be entitled to a Tuition Fee Loan unless you have CPR as advised above but you should be able to apply for a Maintenance Loan.
Thanks, Isaac

Thanks, would this be classed as a gift year? Would maintenance be lower than I've received before due to me having in the past?

No you have already used your additional year as per my calculation above. The Maintenance Loan amount is unaffected by your previous study.
Thanks, Isaac

Even if you did not complete the course, it still counts as years of previous study, so you have 2 years of previous study according to your information.
Thanks, Isaac
