Long story short, cousin went to university for two years and then dropped out. Three years on, he wants to start a new degree. Family are in a different financial situation and can't fund it this time.
I know the formula of years in new course + 1 - years taken. What I'm wondering is does 'years taken' mean years of finance he's actually had or years he could have had?
I'm asking because I know ELQ restrictions apply even if you didn't actually have any student finance for the first degree, I'm wondering if the years of entitlement works the same.

Its number of years he's taken out in finance.

I've heard previous years do count against you, even if SLC didn't fund them. It is previous years study, not previous years financed by SLC.

It is previous years study, regardless if he took out finance or not.
So for your coursin he would get a maintenance loan only in his first year and full eligibility for funding in subsequent years.
