Student finance and prolonged study

Hello,
I am on the end of UG studies, 3rd year, I'm full-time student. But I will need to prolong my studies as I have to repeat one module for 20 credits and finish the dissertation. Am I still eligible for the maintenance loan and tuition fees as well? Of course, proportionally to the part I have to repeat/finish.

Thank you.

Hi there. Will you be doing this repeat part in the next Academic Year or is the current year extending for this? Thanks - David

I think, it's important to mention that normally ( without prolonging) I would finish studies this year in March.
Hi nava-22,

As long as you don't have any other previous study you be be eligible for funding for this repeat by using your additional year. This funding will be offered pro-rata based on your time in attendance.

Thanks,

Great, thanks.
How I should apply for that?
Hi nava-22,

Can you confirm when you would be starting the repeat year?

Thanks, Clare

My 3rd year will finish end of February, also, I will repeat after that, probably from March 2024.

Hi there,

If you can contact us via 0300 100 0607 or the live chat in your account so we can get your course dates and determine if we need you to apply or if the university needs to send us a 'change of circumstance' to update your course dates so we can reassess your funding. Also, I would advise checking with the university to confirm they are treating you as an 'internal' student while you do the repeat module and not an 'external' student. Thanks, Jason
