After a gap year, how are your student loans/grants affected?
I’ve already studied two years of higher education doing a HND course. I have since taken a year out after completing this (a gap year) and now I’m considering re-entering education to turn the HND into a BA, by doing the one year top-up course. Because I have been out of education, working for a year, how will this affect my loan/grant that you recieve?
It won’t affect the loan amount you receive personally. Although if there has been any sort of policy change over the period you took out, you’ll be subject to these rules when you make an application for another student loan.
