Here is the Story:
After my first year I had to repeat few modules.
I come back as a "part-time student on full-time basis"(SF sees this as simply full-time) redo few modules and pass(full funding from SF).
Apply for funding for second year and I get it.
Second year begins, halfway through first semester my mental health deteriorates further (generalised-anxiety and panic attacks) and I'm forced to take a leave of absence.
Went into treatment, it helped.
Reapply for student funding, my application is refused. Reason being I have used my "gift year" for my resits.
Got a job and went uni part-time(only 2 modules) and paid for it myself.
Now(like this week) I was made aware by student union that I can apply for Compelling Personal Reasons (CPR) and that I was(and still am)eligible for part-time funding.
How do I apply for CPR? Can't find anything official on-line. Already managed to get a letter from GP confirming that I couldn't attend during that period because of generalised-anxiety.
Is this true? Can I get funding for part-time?? I was ill-advised by student finance and my university before so I don't fully trust the advice of the student union. Hopefully I can.
Who do you think it is...
