The £9000 sounds like tuition fees instead of a fine. Have you actually been awarded a tuition fee loan? It should say on your award notice whether you're getting one or not.

If you resit a year, it makes sense that you pay for that year :curious:


I can't go to Tescos, buy a snickers, eat the sneakers and say I bought a sneakers, I don't have a snickers, give me another snickers.

Sorry to be so blunt but what do you really expect people on here to do? You need to contact your university and speak to them directly, quickly.

I crushed it up and caked my feet in it.


Then I pay Burmese dwarfs to lick it from between my toes

You get a grace year, so you have Student Finance for 4 years (assuming you've applied for it each year). You should have your resit year paid for.

I get demands every term in my uni email, saying "£XXXX of tuition is due" and then SFE pays them. They send it to everyone, but specifically it's a reminder for people who pay for their tuition personally, such as international students and richos. However, I was never asked to pay for the whole year at a time (as it's by each term).

If you were initially awarded a tuition fee loan to cover this year, it sounds like student finance have looked at your case again and changed their decision.

You need to get in touch with both the university and student finance as soon as possible to find out why.

This happened to me in my first year. The university contacted me telling I needed to pay tuition fees in November. After a lot of stressful phone calls Student Finance said they'd been a paperwork error and my loan was reinstated. The university said it wasn't the first time Student Finance had screwed up like that. But you must get in touch to see if there had been a mistake.
