    I like many others received the "tuition loan requested - £0.00" and thought it was student finances usual **** up behavior. After resending them the form I've found out that because I did a HND course in college for two years, this was effectively paid fro by the government. Due to financial support entitlement being for 4 years, my two year HND course which I finished in 2004, my upcoming 3 year uni course takes it to five years. Therefore I can only get tuition fee for years 2 and 3. Anyone else had this problem?

    It's not a set 4 years support. It's the duration of the new course plus one year, less the previous study.

    You're on your own here, and have until September to fund your first years fees. If not, I'd defer.

    I thought deferring was just a way not pay the loan back until it's convenient or until you're earning a specific amount. I can get the loan somewhere else which is good in the long run, but if there's another way to do it I'd look into it.

    I mean to defer your course for a year, giving you until next September to work and save up to pay your first years fees.

    Not sure, mine lasted two years, I completed it in 2004 I think. I'd imagine so. Not going to defer though. If I don't move out now I never bloody will =P
