    Hi,

    I am currently in my second year but have failed one of my modules (being one semester long) and will need to take this next year before proceeding to third year.

    So I would only complete half a year of study, would I still receive the maintenance loan for the second semester or would I only receive 1/3 of the payments.

    Thanks.

    You need to discuss this directly with your university - it will depend on how they send details of your resit year to SLC/SFE how much money you will get (and even if you'll get money at all - there is a student status for non-attending resit students which can leave you ineligible for student loans and ineligible for JSA/benefits).

    I've already spoken to them about this and they said that student finance would cover it as they have the 'hit and miss year' 5(4 years). I was just wondering if I would get the maintenance loan after Christmas, as thats when my module would be finished. I'm an architecture student so it would be a semester long project.

    While they're correct that in principle this could count as your gift year. If they don't tell the SLC that you're attending full time for the entire year then you won't be eligible for full time funding (which would mean no maintenance loan at all iirr).

    A gift year would usually only be classed as full time if you are repeating the majority of your modules.

    Find out which team at your university is responsible for sending records to the SLC and speak to them about what will be sent off during your repeat year.
