    Hey all. The past couple of years I've really been trying to 'find myself' and figure out what I want to do, career, future wise etc. which has led me to make a few decisions I've later regretted when it comes to my education.

    It started when I got shafted at my high school and decided to drop out of sixth year for a Computing course at a local college. I kind of knew I hated Computing by this point...but it was one of the few things I was good at, and I thought I'd like college better. Didn't happen. Course was a disaster, and I bailed out before receiving an award so that I could get funding for another HNC course.

    Skip forward to now, and I'm now at the same college studying Social Sciences. I got myself all hyped up, convincing myself this is what I wanted to do, and set myself on it.

    Now I'm here...I still don't feel right about it. All I really want to do is go, get a job and go from there. University doesn't interest me. This course isn't going to get me any further than I could now.

    Anyway, what I need to know is about funding. I'm currently receiving a bursery and student tuition from SAAS.

    If I were to drop out, what would I have to pay back? Would I have to stay until the 'cut-off date' (some time around December) to avoid the tuition fees? Would I have to pay back the bursery?
