Starting September 2015, I will be starting a 3-year BSc course.
I was previously on a 3-year course at Birmingham. I completed my first year, but dropped out towards the end of the 2nd year due to family problems at home. I was offered the chance to return to 'try again' essentially, and was charged a much lower fee for the year (Around £1000 instead of the ~£3400).
Again, it didn't work out and I dropped out for good just after Christmas 2013. During this time SFE paid my tuition fees and maintenance loan. From the total 3 years, I recieved roughly £13,000 in funding.
My questions are;
Will I recieve any funding at all on my new course starting September 2015? I was told by an advisor at the Guild that I can apply for a Maintenance Loan for each year, but would likely be eligible for only 1 year (the final year) of Tuition Fees, as I have used 3 of my 4 years of funding.
On top of this, are there any grants or scholarships I would be eligible for at all? It will be a very tight 3-years if I can't get anything at all!

In this case you would only be entitled to one year of funding, which is always given in the final year. You will be eligible for a maintenance loan and supplementary grants from us such as Childcare and Disabled Students Allowance only.
Scholarships/bursaries, etc are given by the colleges/unis themselves so you would need to consult with them to determine your eligibility for them.
