I have applied to do Horticulture and garden Design at Duchy part-time as I believe it is an exception subject and will allow me to get full funding.
I have asked for the UCAS code to check this, but as I applied directly to the University I did not find a UCAS course code.
I have called SFE but they seem very vague and cannot tell me if I will get full funding or not. As part time applications open in the summer I cannot put an application in to find out either. I would like to plan ahead and study some design courses but if need to know if I can get funding first.

Good Morning Imogen,

Can you confirm the college/campus? Is the above course the full course title?

Warm Regards,

Shaun.

Bec Hoticulture Garden and Landscape Design. Cornwall college Group - Duchy. Partnered with The University of Plymouth.

I have spoke to both Plymouth and Cornwall and The Eden Project where the course is run and no one has a course code because you apply directly through the University and not UCAS. No one knows the HECOS code.

The course is part time as I believe all exception courses are. Although, there is a full time option.

I've managed to check from the above details provided. There is the above course showing at Cornwall College and is an exception so funding would be available.

Warm Regards,

Shaun.

Thank you Shaun

It is very bemusing ... I spoke to Student Finance yesterday on the phone and they told me that (despite not having a course code) this course is not an exception course and not available for funding.
How have you found the code because no one else has been able to, including the universities providing the course.

I want to be sure because applications for part time funding opens in the summer. If I am turned down then, it will be too late to apply for a different course for that academic year.

This is often my experience when I call student finance, I ask the same question but get very different answers each time depending on who I speak to.

I have now been told by Cornwall College that the course does have the HECoS code CAH06.

It would be so useful if courses and HECoS codes were available and easy to find. Other than calling each individual University for over a month it would be impossible to get confirmation of the codes.
However, most staff don't even understand it so without persistence you would be misinformed.
