Hi there. What course are you looking to do? Is this now for a Postgraduate course? Thanks, David

I'm not too sure I am currently studying business management ba hons foundation course and its a 4 year course this is my last year.
If I would like to study any other course like masters degree or some cert HE course will i still be funded with tuition fee and maintenance loan?

Hi there. If you gain the qualification from the current course then you would not be eligible for funding on a Cert HE course or anything equivalent or below this as you have already gained a higher level of qualification. You would only be eligible for funding if you are going up a level of qualification (MsC Masters course or PHD level). Other than this, you would not be eligible for funding. It is also worth noting that Postgraduate Masters funding is not paid the same as Undergraduate so there is no Maintenance Loan only a contribution loan paid directly to yourself to help with costs of fees that you can pay to the University. Thanks, David
