    You need to speak to your student office/department office/registry to find out if they will withdraw you for non-attendance/non submission of work or whether skiving off for the last few months will be overlooked. If you receive a final loan payment for the year and then your university notifies SLC that you've withdrawn for non-attendance then SLC can (and do) demand instant repayment for any loan they consider overpaid. We've also had students on TSR who have withdrawn and then had debt collectors from their university's chase them for fee payment (because SLC withdrew support).

    Different universities and courses have different rules so you need to find out the specific rules for your course and make sure that you meet the minimum attendance/work submission requirements if you want to receive a full loan for the year.
