    Hello, I've been to university twice before and dropped out a few weeks in. I was wondering if I want to re apply how many years will I be funded for? Please help

    The general rule for tuition fee loans is
    length of new course + 1 year - years of previous study.

    Part years generally count as an entire year.

    If you don't have a qualification from your previous study you should be entitled to the maintenance loans and other support - just not the tuition fee loan (so you'd have to pay for the first year of your new course up front to your university).

    I understand. I dropped out twice, the first time was the first year and the second time I dropped out of a foundation year. Does that mean I have to pay for 2 years or do they both count as the first year only?
    Thanks

    That counts as 2 years of previous study meaning your first year tuition fees on your new course won't be eligible for a tuition fee loan.

    There can be exceptions if you can prove that you dropped put due to compelling personal reasons (health problems or bereavement).

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
