    If you drop out during or immediately after your first year, you would still have enough Student Finance entitlement to fund a new degree from scratch.

    Unfortunately if you leave during your second year, you wouldn't get the first year of your next degree funded apart from a minimal Maintenance Loan (you would have to fund your own tuition fees and most of your living costs). Full SF would kick back in for the remainder of that degree.

    The calculation is:

    Number of years of your new degree course (minus) Number of years of previous uni-level study (plus) One year = Remaining years of full SF entitlement

    For the purposes of this calculation, SF take partial years as complete. In your situation, if you leave in your second year and start a new three year degree, the calculation gives you 3-2+1=2 years of full SF funding, which you would get in the second and third years.

    Hmm. That complicates things and you're probably better off phoning SF to ask.
