    Wondering if anyone knows if I'll be able to get student finance.

    I went to university and failed my first year, then while resitting the year after I dropped out.

    This was 3 years ago.

    Will I be able to get funding now if I applied to go to a new uni for a new course

    Thanks in advance for any help

    You get years of course + one year - years of funding already received.

    In your case, for a three year degree, this means 3 + 1 - 2 = 2

    You would get 2 years of funding which would be applied backwards meaning you would have to self-fund the first year.

    Do call them and clarify though.

    The old course I was doing was a 2 year course and the new one will also be a 2 year course so I'm guessing it would work like 2 + 1 - 2

    That is my understanding, yes. You can in theory get more funding if you can prove there was a good reason for you not completing one or both of those years (serious mental health issues, for example) but that is fairly rare. It is worth nothing that I do believe that you would be able to get tuition funding for the course if you took it part-time, though obviously that is an entirely different prospect.
