Im ending my course in HNC illustration and thinking about switchin to photography next year, but again at HNC level.
My question is, will i still get a loan from SAAS (scottish student loans) if it is not a level higher than previous study? A girl in my class had trouble ALL YEAR concerning SAAS, their communication and sympathy is dreadful...

    I think you should look at their website! I don't know how it works for stuff that isn't a degree.

    Ask your student welfare advisors about it.

    In England you only get funding for your first course of study, although you can extend your first course from a HND to a degree. If you do another course at the same level, you'll have to pay for it yourself.
