I've passed my 1st year and did well in the first semester of year 2 however I've been ill and have missed the whole of semester 2 so am now looking at either withdrawing or taking a leave of absence - I'm not sure if/when I'd be able to start attending again at the moment so I'm not sure whether I ought to withdraw but I don't want to lose everything I've done so far as I can't afford to pay the fees myself if I had to redo everything.
Does anyone know whether, if I withdraw, I can then resume my studies a few years down the line or would I have to start again from year one and would SFE fund that or just the first 2 years as I've used 2 years of funding already?
Also, if I withdraw now, will I be liable to pay back any money immediately? Would waiting until the end of the year and then leaving be a better option? Does it matter if I haven't attended any classes this semester - will it be backdated to my last day of attendance? And if I were to go in tomorrow and sign a register, would that be that problem solved or does it need to be consistent attendance?
Also does anyone know if taking a leave of absence restricts what you can do before returning? I'm thinking of starting an apprenticeship or working when I'm up to it and just wondered whether there's any kind of rule that stops you working towards another qualification while on leave of absence from uni?
Effect of Withdrawal/Leave of Absence on Funding?
