My girlfriend is thinking of going back to university for a different course next year but she had already done 3 years previously. I know that SFE usually funds 4 years. Would SFE fund her first year and then she have to pay for the others or would she have to pay for the full course?

The previous study rules are based on the length of the new course (assuming she wasn’t awarded a degree).

However it essentially boils down to the fact that if she has 3 years of previous study then year 1 and year 2 of any new course would not be funded. Unfunded means no tuition fee loan for those years of the course. A living costs loan is available for all years.

Unfunded years always come at the start of a new course.

This could all be different if she is choosing an exempt subject for her new degree course. Or if she chooses to study part time instead of full time.
