Will I receive funding for my full 3 year degree if I repeat first year?

Will likely repeat first year owing to personal difficulties, if my circumstances are approved by my university. I wanted to clarify whether I definitely will receive funding for the first year I repeat, and the entire three years? As far as I know you receive funding for all the years you do your course + one extra year.

If it is possible, then how do I go about reapplying for student finance for when I return? Do I need to inform SFE of the fact I am repeating a year? If so, how? Is there some section in the application?

Thank you.

Hi there,

You would be correct with the calculation. You get funding for the length of your course + additional year - previous study.

If this is your first repeat then you'd still get funding. When you make the application you would select what year of course you're doing.

Thanks, Ross

Thank you - is that really all, just select what year of course I'm doing? Is it advisable to inform SFE of my repeat?

Hi there,

Yes. On the application you'd select what year you're in, once it's submitted we will automatically see it's a repeat year.

Thanks, Ross
