Hi,

What are the part-time courses that are eligible as an exception course? I am looking to do sports science.

Hi,

Thanks so much for clarifying. Does the course that I want to do need to have the exact same name as the one you listed? Sports science would be part of the exemption courses or not?

Hi there,

If you confirm the course name, university, start date and how long the course is, we can check this on the system for you.

Thanks,

Hi,

Okay sure.

I applied for two back up courses as well in case I do not get accepted on my first choice.

Do these two courses apply as exception courses.

COMPUTING BSc (Hons) Birkbeck University Oct 2023 4 years

PSYCHOLOGY BSc (Hons) Birkbeck University Oct 2023 4 years

Hi there,

On our system Birkbeck College is the only match for these details, is it part of a franchise with another university?

When you made your application online what university did you select?

Thanks, Graeme

Hi,

Okay have you checked the link I shared so you can see which university it is and maybe see if it is a franchise or something similar. I haven't applied for funding yet until I received the confirmation I got accepted. Since Psychology is an exception course wouldn't it be eligible for funding if the course is 4 years. Is it possible birkbeck college and birkbeck university are the same institution?

Does the university itself affect the eligibility of the course?

Hi there, They are 2 different institutions, this indicates that the course is eligible for funding with Birkbeck College only. Thanks, Angela

Hi,

I asked Birkbeck University about this and they confirmed that on SFE they are listed as Birkbeck College. I hope that clears it up and confirms I am eligible for funding.
