If your course lasts for more than one academic year you must, should you wish funding for any further years, make a separate application for each academic year. Your award will not be automatically renewed or guaranteed. Students can receive a maximum of three years funding in any six years (Supported Learning courses, only, may attract a fourth year depending on progression). This includes funding at Further Education and Higher Education levels.
Repetition of courses will not be eligible for funding in the repeated year at any level. This also
applies for courses undertaken at the same level as the previous year completed. EMA funding is excluded where another course is undertaken at the same level, however, cannot be paid for a repeat of the same course.
