    I have completed an Hnc and have decided to go into first year at uni after the summer. Everything is sorted and then I hear that since I did an Hnc which is equivalent to first year uni I have to pay tuition fees and I am not able to get a bursary as I recieved it last year. Is this true or does it depend on personal circumstances?

    See the SAAS website page on previous assistance.

    It would appear that unless you have "medical or strong compassionate reasons, such as the death or serious illness of a close relative" then they will not pay for your first year of uni.

    However you'd be best contacting them directly to find out for sure as they suggest.

    If you are not eligible to get your fees paid for you, you will still be able to get a loan to cover the cost.

    Hope this helps. If you want me to explain something more just say.
