I was previously enrolled as a Computer Science student at Queens University Belfast. I dropped out after a couple of years (it wasn't for me) and now after taking a few months break from education, I wish to return.
I plan on going to a different university this time.
As far as I can tell, I should be able to get a loan again, although I'm not 100% sure.
I found that I should be able to get full support like before
"If you didn’t complete your course for reasons other than compelling personal circumstances, the funding you can get for further study depends on where you get your funding:
- England, Wales and Northern Ireland: you can get funding for the ordinary duration of your new course plus one year, but less any years of funded study you’ve undertaken already (partial years of previous study count as full years when calculating what you’re entitled to). For example, if you dropped out of your previous funded course after half a year, and your new course is three years long, you can apply for full funding for the whole three years of your new course (three years for the ordinary course duration, plus one year but minus a whole year for your previous study). If you get your funding in Northern Ireland from Student Finance NI, previous part-time study that didn’t lead to a qualification isn’t taken into account.
I am assuming that the last sentence from that means that I can reapply for a full loan and my previous loan wont affect it? If any has any ideas or has done this themselves, please let me know. I've only got a few weeks before UCAS closes.
