I'm repeating second year at Uni and have tried to activate my +1 year with SAAS in order to get full funding. Initially they approved. Now, 5 weeks into my course they have reassessed and said my first year was technically my +1 year as I had started a uni course back in 1995 and received tuition assistance.
Now I did start a uni course back in 1995 but withdrew after a month because I got a job that I really wanted to do. But tuition fees were not introduced until 1997, so what are they talking about when they say I received "tuition assistance"? I remember receiving my first student loan payment back then but according to SAAS student loans don't count when it comes to previous study - only tuition fees.
Does anyone know how SAAS count previous study before tuition fees were introduced? Also they say the Uni never notified them that I had withdrew from the course therefore the uni received tuition fees for me. How? There was no tuition fees.
This is causing me endless sleepless nights as I can't afford £1800 in fees.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
SAAS +1 year advice desperately needed
