Suspended studies and suspended student financeWatch
Our discretionary payments team will look into paying you through a suspension if you can demonstrate you are in financial hardship, yes. They would ask for evidence such as the last 3 months bank statements, copies of any arrears/debt letters you have,etc to show you are struggling.
Alternatively, for students who have suspended for health reasons, we can usually award 60 days extra funding effectively extending your suspension date by 60 days. We would require the college/uni to advise us when they are sending over your suspension that this was due to health reasons and then we would require some form of medical evidence from you, such as a GP letter explaining the issue and how it affected your studies.
Either of these methods will be sure to award you additional funding.
