have successfully completed a 'Year Zero course' (such as Foundation Pathways in Technology/Management, Government and Law Foundation Year) and will be progressing
onto a different course in the next academic year. Should I inform the Student
Loans Company of this change?
Yes - you
should inform the Student Loans Company of the course change via your Student
Finance online account.
note that you will have to select a slightly different version than the
standard degree - the version that should be selected for progressing Year Zero
course students should have the letters EXTDYR in the course name title. For
example - if you were progressing onto BSc Biological Sciences after completing
a Year Zero course you should inform the Student Loans Company that you are
changing course to BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES EXTDYR-FT or BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES
EXTDYR-SW (if you were planning on studying a placement year). The FT stands
for Full Time and the SW stands for Sandwich. If the UCAS code of the new
course is entered on the online application, all available versions will be
visible for selection.
also ensure that you select course Year 1 of this new course (as you have
already studied course Year Zero/foundation in the previous academic
year). In subsequent academic years please make certain you remain on the
EXTDYR version when applying for Student Finance.
haven’t studied a Year Zero course, please DO NOT attempt to link yourself to
any of the EXTDYR versions for Student Loans Company purposes as this may cause
have any queries regarding which course you should select during your Student
Finance application please email email@example.com.
