Hi , if I have received funding for a Degree course (4years) Childhood and Early years and have awarded with a lower award. Taking into account that if I were to apply for another degree BA in Primary Teaching would I be eligible for the funding for the 3 years as this is a teacher training course. Thank you

2. How old you are.

4. Any previous study and qualifications you may hold.
Thanks, Isaac

Is the Northumbria one the 3 year long course? Is the Sunderland one 2 years or less?
Thanks, Isaac

If the course was 2 years or less and non salaried then your previous study wouldn't affect eligibility.

Our guidance states: Undergraduate ITT courses of over two years Bachelor of Education (BEd) courses are usually three or four years long and a student will gain a honours degree. These courses are ITT exception courses but are subject to previous study rules as they take longer than two years to complete.

You mention you have 4 years of previous higher education study.

The calculation we use is course length + 1 additional year - minus previous study.

Your calculation with 4 years of previous study will be 3+1-4 = 0 years of funding available.
You will still receive a Maintenance Loan but you will have to self fund the course fee.
Thanks, Isaac

Okay, thank you. Would it not be possible to receive funding for 2 years and then self fund the 3rd year?
Also how much maintenance loan would it be?

No that isn't possible as it's not an exception course. Only the 2 year course is an exception course.

You can calculate the Maintenance Loan here https://www.gov.uk/student-finance-calculator

Thank you so much, if I were were to have a BA Honours Qualification rather than a Higher National Diploma and enrolled into a 1 year PGCE or 1 year SCITT (unsalaried), would that make me eligible for the tuition fee student finance?

If you will be gaining Qualified Teacher Status for the first time, the course is 2 years or less and non salaried then your previous study will not affect eligibility and you can apply for full funding including tuition fees.
