    I have previously been to University for 2 years and dropped out due to personal reasons. I applied for student finance in May 2014 for a new course at a new uni and got accepted for this. Since than I have had 2 letters one in May 2014 and one in December 2014 telling me that my tuition loan will be paid directly to the University (I started my first semester in October 2014). Last week i received a letter from the student loan repayment office informing me that they cannot support me in 2014/15 academic year despite previously being told I would be supported fully through student finance and today I have received an invoice from my university. I have rang up the student finance company but as suspect got nothing more than an apology and no other help. I know have until 25/02/2015 to pay £8900 which I have no way of doing. Can anyone suggest any help please?

    unless you can provide evidence to student finance of why dropped out e.g. letter from a doctor saying you were ill, then there isn't an alternative beyond self funding

    Even though they had already approved the tuition fees?
