CASE STUDY 1
Chloe needs to repeat modules from year 1 of her three year course.
PREVIOUS STUDY - Chloe has no previous study at HE level.
Repeating modules will still be classed as a full year of study. This will utilise Chloe's plus one year of funding. Chloe will therefore have funding secured for the rest of her course but not for any further repeats, unless there are grounds for copelling personal reasons.
CASE STUDY 2
Rachel is currently in the second year of a four year course but will be transferring to year one of a new three year course at a new establishment the following academic year.
PREVIOUS STUDY - Rachel will be classed as having two years previous study for her first course. Rachel's new course will mean she is entitled to four years funding (length of course 3 years + 1 extra year = 4 years of funding entitlement). However, due to previous study, Rachel will only receive two years' funding for the new course (4 years funding entitlement - 2 years previous study = 2 years funding). These two years will be allocated to the later part of the course, meaning that Rachel will only be entitled to a Maintenance Loan for the first year of the new course.
CASE STUDY 3
Josh is currently in year two of studying 3 year BEng course and will be transferring to a four year MEng course in the new academic year.
PREVIOUS STUDY - Josh has no previous study at HE level. Josh will be progressing and directly from year 2 to year 3 with no previous repeats/transfers or suspensions so his funding will be unaffected - he will receive funding for th remainder of his course and also have access to a plus 1 year of funding, if needed.
