So I've heard that if I drop out for my first ever year at my first ever course, I'll still be eligible for funding when I return to uni (I don't plan on returning until Sep 2012).

However I've also heard that I could only be funded for my second and third years but I'd have to pay the first year myself?? If this is true then that's ridiculous cause how in the hell am I meant to pay £9000 by 2012?

Can someone just confirm this please? Someone who actually knows for certain.

The rule is that you'll have funding for the length of your course + 1 year - any previous years' funding. This means if you next course is 3 years, then you will still get 3 years funding.
