So, I drastically have decided I can't go to university this year due to far too much worrying over student finance.
With this in mind I have now applied to apprenticeships in order to take a year of training and save some money. I hope to use the money I save to go to university next year.
However, I have a few questions regarding finance.
- is it possible to go to university a year later after rejecting university offers this year on results day and taking an apprenticeship instead?
- can you get a student loan to cover uni fees and a maintenance grant for living costs after carrying out an apprenticeship year?
- do I re-apply for university next year through UCAS?

yes its fine as long as you havent accepted an offer from a university or enrolled, if you have then just email or ring them to defer for a year (IF you want to stay at that university) or to withdraw from the course. if you dont have a great reason they might not accept another application though. student finance wont be affected either as long as you phone them to let them know you arent going to university this year and havent enrolled.
if you defer you phone the university to confirm again that you are returning that september otherwise yes you reapply through ucas as normal
not 100% on this one but im pretty sure an apprenticeship has no affect on uni loans
