    Having failed my first year, I have been offered to retake the year to complete the 5 modules that I have failed. However this will come at a cost of £3375.

    Due to my failure my father has decided to no longer fund me through university leaving the housing and all other costs on my shoulders.

    My question is whether or not Student Finance will fund me for my tuition fees or must I pay for this out of my own pocket?

    If you haven't studied at university prior to this degree then they will fund the tuition fees for you. However unless your repeat year is full time they won't give you any maintenance loan or grant and given most universities charge £8-9k for full time fees it doesn't sound like it to me.
