I think you can get funding for 4 years at undergraduate level so that would include what you have already done and the new degree. What happens in practice is that the funding will stop when you have done the 4th year so you will be funded for what you have done but not for all of the new degree.
I didn't know that, so would my first and second year go unfunded? I didn't think it mattered seeing as I still wouldn't have completed a full undergraduate degree, which is what I was led to believe, would preclude any funding, but having a first and second year completed wouldn't make a difference :S
Ok so long story short, I am currently studying full time, for a law degree at a good university. However, I am thinking about transferring to a different, much better one.
The trouble is I have to wait for 2014 entry in which case the two years I would have spent on my degree would have been wasted as I cannot transfer my modules and grades over and would need to start again. The trouble is, despite my university being 'good', it is not great, on top of which my first year grades were nothing to rejoice over...whilst I want to start over again I don't want to waste more time, especially because I already took a year out before...
