    Hello, I'm leaving Uni soon, I'm in my first year and want to do something else as I'm not enjoying my course, however I have spent half of my moeny given to me by student finance for this semester already on things I thought would make me enjoy my course more.

    When I leave what will student finance want me to do? Will I still be on the original contract where I start paying back once I make a certain amout each year or will it be different because I've left early? I might apply to University next year, will this affect anything to do with paying back?

    I left earlier this year, just didnt go back after xmas..cant say what student finance will say, as they still havent contacted me after notifying them early january, but as for applying next year, get in quick because the ucas deadline has pretty much gone, you can do point 2 entry though. I think, but im not sure that if you go back to uni then what you owe might be added to your existing debt..

    Are you saying that you've already spent your January loan installment? If so, and if you drop out now, you'll need to pay that back as it was intended to cover the full semester.

    Simple solution, just don't officially quit uni (Just go back home). Until the end of this semester. No problems then

    They've started playing hardbakll and saying they want money owed paid back before they'll consider you for a future loan.
