Second degree funding

I would like some advice regarding tuition fee loans for going back to university.

Due to failing my dissertation during my final year, I only graduated with a Diploma of higher education rather than the full BA honours. I received funding for the full three years of study plus maintenance loans. The university have agreed that I could go back a do the top up course, so essentially re-doing final year over again. Would I still be entitled to tuition fee funding for this year of study?

also, what other financial help is there regarding childcare and single parent?

thanks

Hi

I did the three years of study and had tuition fees covered by SFE for all three. I did not gain my full BA honours due to failing my dissertation. I instead graduated with a diploma of higher education.

Hi Jen, Therefore you will be eligible for the one year top up course. Thanks, Angela

Thank you for your reply. That is great to hear. would I have to provide any evidence whilst applying for the tuition fees?

also, is there any additional financial support regarding single parents and childcare?
Hi there. No, you don't have to supply evidence for the Tuition Fee.

There is a Childcare Grant and Parents Learning allowance you may be eligible to apply for.

Parents Learning Allowance: https://www.gov.uk/parents-learning-allowance/what-youll-get

Thanks, Leah.

Thank you.

I just want to clarify, will I be eligible for the one year top up course fees even though I have already received three years worth of tuition fees previously?
Hi Jen,

Yes you would be eligible for the Tuition Fee Loan.

Thanks, Drew
