student finance second degree

hi,
I will be studying mechanical engineering as a second degree with foundation year full time. this will make me eligible to transfer to the part time version of the course after completion. my question is will be able to get funding for the foundation year as well?


thanks

Thanks. The course only shows as a 3 year course on their database. Have they advised it's for 4 years? Thanks, Jason

Hi, on the the Manchester metropolitan university website it states that it can be done within 4 years if its part time in the evening. but because I do not have the right subjects I would have to do a foundation year on top.

Thanks. If it's an evening course this wouldn't attract funding. There is a 3 year part time one for 23/24. If it's for 24/25 the university haven't yet updated the details so we can't confirm this just yet. So currently the 3 year option would attract the funding. Thanks, Jason

Hi, I just checked, but cannot find the 3 year part time. I can only find a 4 year part time for mechanical or electrical engineering on the website.

thanks,

Hi there. That UCAS code of H308 only brings up a full time 4 year course. There is no part time version under this code. As Jason stated, on the system we share with the university to check the courses, there is only a 3 year part time one.

You may be best speaking with the university about the course details, as they may not have updated them. Thanks, Leah.

Hi, I think i have to apply directly to the university website through a different form instead of ucas. I have spoken to the university and they said that I can swap to the part time course if I complete the foundation year. will the foundation year be funded?

thanks,

If it's an evening course at the university then you likely won't be eligible for funding. The course needs to be on the database to attract funding from us. There is a 3 year option that I've advised is a part time exception but there isn't a 4 year course (including foundation). You'd be best to check with the university for clarification and they can update the database accordingly if it's not an evening course. Thanks, Jason

thanks, I will contact the university to clarify the course incase. but I think the foundation year is a separate course so it may not show up with the engineering degree. and will have to apply directly to the university.

thanks
