    Ok,

    I just found out through looking at various threads on here that i will probably have to pay the 1st yr course fee myself and that student finance will only pay the 2nd n 3rd year for me...

    Questions:

    1. Are universitys fexible about payment of course fees (payment in around january time)

    2. Even though tuition fee not eligible, it does say im entitled to the Maintenance grant and the loan on the website anyway. can someone confirm for me that i can stil ave the grant and loan.

    3. If i do recieve the grant,loan and bursary... can i arrange a payment date for the 1st year fee with the university at a later date

    Please help me out would much appreciate it

    Thank You,

    Adam

    I assume this means you've taken two years of an undergrad degree then restarted?

    1) Uni of birmingham offers monthly, termly or upfront payment options so about as flexible as you can get. Don't know about elsewhere but just look on their website/ask the uni.
    2) I'm fairly sure its just the tuition loan that is limited by restart years, so you should get the maintenance loan but I'm not 100% you could try calling student finance, you never know you might get someone with >1 brain cell - unlikely.
    3) Again ask the uni - every uni will be different

    If you're not eligible for a tuition fee loan, you won't be eligible for a maintenance grant.

    You will get the maintenance loan for year one, and it's down to your university for the bursary.

    Then you are entitled to tuition fee support, despite your original post saying you weren't. You just need to read it better.

    You're eligible for a fee loan of £3225, but you did not request this.
