    I'm aware that student finance will only fund you to go to University for 4 years. I was enrolled to London Metropolitan for the year 2013/14 and was due to finish my course at the end of 2015/16. I dropped out in my second year at the end of term 1. Since there are 3 terms in an academic year, I conclude that I've only had funding for 1 year and 1 term. Is it safe to assume that I have 2 years and 2 terms left of potential funding for future studies? I'm thinking of re-enrolling to a different University for the academic year 2016/17 for a 3 year course. Assuming that I only have 2 years and 2 terms of funding left, What would happen? would I be required to pay for one term myself? would Student Finance count my one term in my second year at London Met as a complete year, meaning that I would have to fund 1 year for myself? I would appreciate it if somebody can give me any advice on this matter.

    They ll round it up and call it 2 years funding so you ll have to fund the 1st year of a new course.

    Hi there,

    It depends with Student Finance, I'm from Northern Ireland so might be a little different but I remember someone saying you can get up to five year funding if you have either failed or did a placement year so it depends. You will be best to call them so you can confirm this before deciding.

    I am a student from London Met as well and was going to ask what course you studied and if it was to do with the course as to why you dropped out? I am just about to finish my course and have really loved my experience with London Met and have been given a lot of opportunities.

    Hope you get your student finance sorted and let me know if you need any other advice.

    Thanks,
    Kyle
