Hope someone can help me.
I want to apply to do a Social Work undergraduate degree, however I went to university a couple of years ago to do an undergraduate degree in a different subject, which I never completed. I dropped out at the end of the first term in the second year. Would I be eligible to receive any funding now that I want to return to studying?
At the moment I am in full time employment (in social care) and living at home.

As you have 2 years previous study, that would mean that for your first year of the new course you would only be entitled to a maintenance loan, but you would have full funding for the rest of the course (tuition fee loan and maintenance grant, if eligible).
You may also be able to apply for a social work bursary from the NHS Business Services Authority.
If you dropped out from the previous course for a specific reason (i.e. medical) and you can provide evidence of this you may be able to claim that year of funding back, which would mean you would be fully funded for all years of the new course.
