I'm in my first year of uni, in October which was a month after starting, My Grandad passed away meaning I missed a lot of lectures and practicals due to me grieving. After the christmas period I was fully ready to get stuck back in when in the middle of January my auntie passed away. This then sent me over the edge and I again wasn't attending lectures/practicals. My tutor has suggested I take a leave of absence and start the whole year again in September which I think is the best option for me, although I just wonder how this will affect my student finance? Will I still get the next 3 years fully funded? I currently get my tuition fees paid for (£9000) and get a maintenance grant and loan. Can anyone help?
And actually passed?
