    Hello, I withdrew from Uni in the first semester of the second year.

    I read the following regarding how finances would be affect on my second course:

    "Two years of previous study: You'll have to pay your own way for the first year of your course, but you'll get student finance for every year after that."

    Would this still affect me, since I only started a semester in the second year and have not completed the full year?

    Unfortuantely, yes. If you've completed a certain amount of weeks, (I can't remember how many) it counts as a full year.

    Yes, student finance count full and part years the same, so you'll need to pay the fees for the first year of a new degree yourself

    Good advice above.

    Just to add - if you dropped out due to something like ill health, a close family bereavement etc, you may be able to "claim back" a year of your Student Finance entitlement, through their Compelling Personal Reasons process. That would give you enough SF remaining to fund a full degree and you wouldn't have to fund the first year yourself.

    I don't know why I keep forgetting about this.
