    Hi there,

    I am a bit worried.. i just applied for student finance again (3rd time now) as i did a 2 yr HND and now starting a 3 yr Degree.

    However, im worried that there will be a limit that i can ave but on application form and when i rang them mentioning starting a new course they said nothing. Im in a house where no income comes through (mom n dad dont work)

    So am i worrying bout nothing and i still will be able to get it to pay for my degree

    Thanks in advance

    I think i read somewhere that student finance will fund you for 4 years only. Don't quote me on that though.

    just found out that its 4 years for Student finance support

    Considering i have no income coming into my house then that rly doesnt help me at all

    If they say i have to pay for 3rd yr myself then that is ok as i will be able to save up... but 1st year i wont be able to save up in time

    Shall i contact student finance about this

    Because you're doing a second degree, I doubt you'll get funding. http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=656018

    I did a HND and left due to personal stuff...anyway I called SAAS(student finiance people for Scotland) as I was considering transferring uni and wanted to see what would happen and they said that as I'd been funded for a HND they would only fund me if I managed to get into the 2nd year of a course,if it was 1st year then I'd have to pay for it as they'd paid for the HND and will have paid for the 1st year of a degree.

    If I'm reading your post right you've done a HND then moving onto a degree,is it the 2nd or 3rd year?if it's 3rd year you should get finance no problems but I am by no means an expert especially on how it works in england so I would phone the relevant finance people.

    If you go into year 2 of the degree, you'll be ok for support. Year one will mean no fee support or maintenance grant for that year.
