    Hi All,

    I’m so angry with the student loans company – I am 2 months (started in end of Jan) into my 2 year LLB Law course, 6 weeks before my first set of exams and they have turned round and said I am not entitled to any funding and that all the money they have paid me this year needs to be paid back.

    This is despite the fact that they confirmed my assessment in September 2010 and then again on the 15th of February 2011 with a letter to take to my university finance department if requested (after paying my first instalment on February 1st) and then on the 28th February wrote to me saying that all the money paid needs to be paid back.

    The reason given was that because I had previously completed 2 years of my LLB course back in 2009, I was not entitled to receive funds,

    I tried to explain that I left a good job in Jan 2011 based on their confirmation of support back in September, however they have come back to me saying that they are governed by legislation.

    Any advice/ similar stories?

    Kind Regards

    James A
