I dropped out two months into the second year of a 3 year course, and will be commencing a new 3 year course in September (starting at year 1). I understand that you only give funding for 3 years + 1. I dropped out due to illness and other mitigating factors, and read somewhere that sfe give consideration to students who drop out because of these reasons only a few months into a year. Is this true, or is there still no way I'd be able to get funding for my final year?

For students who can't get full funding due to previous study it's actually the first year we wouldn't be able to fund, not the final year.
We do take into consideration if a student had what are known as, 'Compelling Personal Reasons.' This can be where a student had to leave due to illness for example. All you would need to do is send a letter from a GP or from a lecturer who can explain the situation and how it led to you having to leave.
