Top up funding

Dd wants to do a top up degree to a level 6 diploma. It is a full time course.

Is she able to access funding? She never used funding for the level 6 diploma
Hi there, we would need some more information to determine this.

Can you confirm the full name of the new course and university? How many years will it be? When does the new course start? Can you give a breakdown of the previous study they have done, and how many years they have previously studied? Thanks, Leah.

It's a BA (hons) in musical Theatre. It is a top up and she will enter year 2 so do two years. It's with university of Bolton. The course starts in Sept 24.

She has done a Level 6 diploma in Professional Dance. Not using student Finance. It was 3 years.

Thanks for looking.

Hi there,

Thanks - yes, based on what you've said the student should be entitled to funding from us for the duration of the top-up.

To know for sure, we'd strongly recommend that she makes an application online as soon as possible. That way, we can confirm to her exactly what she's entitled to.

Thanks, Graeme

Thank you so much. She tried to apply yesterday but there was a problem with her trying to apply for year 2 of the course. We have contacted the uni for assistance

Thanks for your help
