    I did a year's Foundation course, and then the first term of my first year's Biomedical Science degree, which I know counts as two years, and therefore I only qualify for two years' funding.
    I dropped out due to anxiety and depression which I know now, but this was around 5 years ago and I've only been recently diagnosed, looking back now it all makes sense why I couldn't function normally but due to this I don't think SFW will count it as extenuating circumstances.

    Does this mean that I would have to fund a £9k tuition fee? Or would I still get the grant reducing it to just under £4k?
    Would I get any grants at all?

    If I cant get funding its looking like I can't go to uni again as I can't quit my job to go back with no funding and I have a mortgage to pay!
    The idea of going back has really lifted me up and finding all this out has kinda made me lose hope now

    Unlike SFE, SFW don't have a representative on TSR.

    For complex cases like this you're best off calling directly and asking what the situation is (and getting your application in ASAP so that you have time to appeal and provide evidence if possible).
