    Hey guys; I am heading back to Uni next year (place is already confirmed) but I am worried about somethings...

    My situation is that I attended Uni for a year (but didnt complete the year) and dropped out. I took out the course loan and the £3k bursary.

    Since my course wasnt completed I had to repay the loan and the bursary - so £6K

    Anyway; I have been to college doing a relevant course, I'm heading back to uni but want to know whether the interest will stop on my course loan from the first year; and whether I am elligable for the local college bursary / any other bursaries...?

    The interest will not stop if you still owe any money. It runs from the day you get the loan until the day you pay it off.

    Bursaries are university dependent and often means tested.

    I thought that the course loan doesnt start charging interest until you leave uni?

    Nope. From the day you get it.
