Reapplying and student loans

    I studied journalism in my first year at University of Huddersfield but around Christmas I decided Huddersfield wasn't the place for me and reapplied through UCAS to transfer to London College of Communication (one of the UAL constituent colleges) and start my second year there. My unconditional offer came through today but now I'm having second thoughts about journalism after volunteering at my old primary school for a few weeks, which has made me consider primary school teaching as a possible career instead.
    I am torn between the two so I'm trying to think about my options and possible restraints, leading to the question I am(finally) posing: I applied for a student loan when I intended on going to Huddersfield and again when I reapplied to LCC, for obvious reasons, but what happens if I take a year out while I decide what to do? Should I withdraw my new application for a student loan and reapply if I decide to go back to the university next September? I'm not sure if there is a limit to how many times you can apply for student finance so if someone could help me out I'd be very grateful.
