    Hi I'm new here

    So I live in Scotland and done a drama course at the City Of Glasgow College 2012-2013 and obviously for funded for that course no problem and I passed the course. Then I felt that Drama/Acting wasn't for me and applied for a course called General Education at Stow College, and I got funded for that because apparently it was a different subject from Acting and there was no problem there apparently. Unfortunately I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety and this got steadily worse and worse to the point I wasn't leaving the house, so then I was dropped from the course and I sort of thought I'd ruined a lot of things for myself. But this year my Doctor and therapist encouraged me to get up off my arse for what of a better word and find work and/or go back to education. So this year I applied for a course at National 4 level in various SQA subjects, and surprisingly got accepted! But now I'm really worried Student Finance won't help me cause of what I've done the past few years, even though I can put down to dropping out last year due to Mental Health issues, but even then I'm not sure?

    If anyone can help I'd appreciate it

    thanks!
