    Hello,

    I dropped out of university just after the start of my second year. I am now hoping to go back. I am starting a different course, so I am short of a years funding. I dropped out because because I was genuinely ill, and there are medical records to show this.

    How do I go about applying for extenuating circumstances? And I know it probably depends on the issue, but are appeals usually successful? If there is compelling evidence of course.

    Thank you.

    Hi there.

    You can supply medical evidence directly to us in order to have this considered. This is usually a letter from GP confirming how your illness directly related to you leaving your course.

    It's not considered an appeal, it's simply one of our normal processes and evidence is likely to be accepted as long as the letter clearly states how your illness directly effected your course.

    Thanks.
