    Right. Bit of an interesting one this.....

    I'm currently 28 and studying an access to HE course with a view to heading to university the following year, so far so straightforward.

    However!

    I have previously attended university from 18 onwards,(2003, 2004 and 2005) and dropped out of study in my first year 3 times in three different courses. (due to a variety of reasons). The first and last time I was there for a week and month respectively and any loans received were paid back. My 2nd attempt I did receive 2 parts and this is still outstanding.

    The question is, having never completed a first year would I qualify for most of the loans available (I will fall well under the £25k threshold for earnings and am a single dependant on pt time wages). If not what would/could I qualify for?

    Any information would be greatly appreciated, likewise if you need further info please don't hesitate to ask!

    Many thanks

    However looking through similar posts I think I may qualify for just the one year, due to starting a course in 3 separate years. Would that be correct or does the fact they are different have any bearing? (Unfortunately I have no evidence to back up leaving due to ill health).

    Thanks in advance!

    It's length of your new course - previous study years + 1 extra year.

    So 3 - 3 + 1 for you so they would only fund your final year.

    Whether you're there for a day or a year it still counts as a year of funding.

    There's a compelling personal reason system for you to appeal with if you can provide evidence that justifies why you dropped out in the past.

    Hi there,

    What ParadoxSocks has advised is correct.

    Please note you would still be welcome to apply to receive a Maintenance Loan for each year of your new course.

    Thanks
