    I've posted this is in student finance but thought someone in here may know.
    In 2010 I started a nursing diploma of which I completed a year and a half. I left because my mental health problems became quite severe which led to me leave without really telling anyone. I'm hoping to go back to do a new course in September and will be trying to claim compelling reasons to get a years funding back. My question is will a letter from my gp be enough as I'm not really in a place where I can ask for a letter from the uni.

    Thanks in advance

    I rang Student Finances about funding a few weeks back as I had sent them a letter from my GP regarding compelling personal reasons for me leaving my first attempt at University. I was told it's decided on case-by-case basis as and when the funding is applied for but generally the more evidence you can get, the better. Oh, and keep copies of everything you sent as they already lost the original GP's letter I sent them.

    I'm guessing it would also be good if you could get a letter from a mental health professional.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
