I am a final year student. Earlier this month I decided with my personal tutor that I should apply for a medical temporary withdrawal. My temporary withdrawal date is set to the last day of term 2, and I would be returning on the first day of term 3 in 2017. However, as I put in my request only a couple of weeks ago (with supporting GP letters for my request,) it hasn't been processed yet, and I've received the grants & loans I am eligible for since term 3 has started.
I'm wondering if anyone knows what will happen as a result of this - would I have to pay it back immediately when my temporary withdrawal is processed, will I be able to keep this but not receive any financial support in term 3 2017, or another scenario? I'm just asking since I've spent about £80 of it already and need to know whether I should move it into my savers account for safekeeping until SFE ask for it before I spend any more of it.
I've tried getting through to SFE, spoke to two people about it, but seems neither knew exactly what will happen!
Many thanks for any help.
...or just paranoid?
