Hi

I'm hoping someone has any advice or information regarding compelling personal reasons and student finance england? I'm approaching the end of my 3 year bachelor degree and am hoping to change courses onto the extended degree which is an integrated masters degree, which would be an extra year. I know this type of extended degree is usually funded by student finance, however, I had to repeat the 2nd year of my course due to personal/medical reasons, which means I have now already had 4 years of funding with SFE.

I was just wondering if I changed my course to the 4 year one now and applied for student finance again, do I have a chance of getting funding for an extra year with compelling personal reasons. I'm slightly confused as to how it all works and I'm worrying that I'm not going to be able to do an extra year if I can't get any funding. Any help would be much appreciated!

Thankyou!

    You are entitled to full funding for the length of your first degree course (regardless of its length) + 1 gift year to cover any repeat years/change of degree etc.

    So you will be entitled to full funding for the length of your integrated masters (if you transfer from e.g. BSc to MMath).
