If you have only done one year at uni, you will be able to get funding for all years of a new degree. If you need to in future (e.g. if you need to retake a year) you can claim your first year of entitlement back through the Compelling Personal Reasons process. You would need proof that you were forced to leave your first course due to health problems e.g. a letter from GP/counsellor etc. I would strongly advise seeking medical help as soon as possible, for this reason if nothing else.
You will have to repay the loans you've already had. However if you tell your current uni that you're leaving as late as possible over the summer, then you will only have to repay under the normal conditions e.g. as deductions from future wages once you earn over the threshold. I'm quite surprised that the uni hasn't withdrawn you after 7 months of no coursework/exams, but that's up to them.Last edited by Klix88; 29-05-2016 at 11:10.
