    I am considering going back to uni after a few years away from education, but following my A levels I started a degree and dropped out very quickly, and the following year I started at uni again but failed first year so again I left.

    However I only took funding for my tuition fee's for one of these years, so I wondered if I would still be eligable for a further 3 years funding or not?
    I did take the maintainance loan for both years, so I am aware this means I am not eligable for another full 3 years, but I could manage without this, it is the tuition fee's that are more important.

    Hope someone may be able to help me out on this one! Thanks

    Unless you had compelling personal reasons then you won't be eligible. Compelling personal reasons can be anything, but are usually things like illness or serious family problems.
