    Hi all,

    I was hoping someone may be able to help.

    Due to diagnosed depression (I am on medication), I have been unable to complete work and have fallen so far behind in discussions with my university they have today advised me to suspend my studies, and re take the year beginning in October.

    I'm panicing as I received my maintenance loan and grant at the start of the month (£2,000), £1,300 of which I have had to pay out straight away in rent to cover 16 weeks to August. (the other £700 I planned to use for bills and food)

    Will I have to repay the loan and grant? - I have no way of paying this back. My family are not in a financial position to help, and there doesn't seem to be any guidance on the student finance website.

    The Uncertainty is really worrying me, and adding to the pressure i feel under, which is not good for my health, so any advice would be really appreciated.

    Thanks

    I'm not totally sure but I think you just pay it back as you would a normal student loan, little amounts when you're earning over 21k
