I have booked & paid for my course with Tescos Vouchers

Now I find this
" From the information you have provided it appears that you could be eligible for a partial award which would be:

* A course grant of £191 to help with study expenses.

If you intend to study a course where the fees are higher than £785, for example Business or Law, you will also qualify for support towards the proportion of your course fee that is higher than £785. You will only receive this additional support for one such high fee course per year.

If you are eligible for a partial award, you are also likely to qualify for up to £200 additional funding towards your course fees. "

Have I wasted £200?
Can I get them back? or credited to my next one?
Am I too late to apply?

What are study expeses?

additionsl funding is an ILA account.

study expenses are for computers,books etc

I dont think you can get your vouchers back but its a lesson learned for your next course,so many people are entitled to funding that you really should explore all this before handing over your cash

sorry if thats sound harsh.

I had no idea you could get any help at all

FAQ's thread last night made me go looking
No one on the helpline suggested I could get any help at all - which is a shame
