    I'll try not to ramble on but I went to Anglia Ruskin university and I hated the course I was on and the time I spent at uni I had a lot of medical issues, I finished one year but didn't pass it all, so for my second year instead of continuing I had to make up credits.. That's when I got very unwell and dropped out.

    I now have my medical issues under control and I've been studying child care, I'm 22 and I want to peruse this even further through university. Can I replay apply? And how much am I covered for loans?

    Did you get 2 years of funding with student finance or 1? (regardless of whether you completed the years)

    If you got 1 year of funding you will be fine to start a new degree fully funded as student finance gives you 1 grace year. But that does mean it will be your last chance to start again fully funded, and you wouldn't have any repeat years covered.

    If you had 2 years funded then you will need to fund the first year yourself and then student finance will fund the subsequent years (someone correct me if I'm wrong)

    What Sophie said. They wont fund your first year, but you can try and appeal under compelling personal circumstances. You will need evidence that your health reasons were serious enough.
