    Hey, just a random question that I'm curious about. Supposing someone got into uni and lived there and their tuition was 9k and their maintenance loan was 6k a year. Supposing that person dropped out in December. How much would they have to pay back? Is there ever a point where it is free to drop out - like a week after getting to the uni?

    In terms of the tuition fee, each uni can set its own deadlines. Some insist on a proportion of the tuition fee being paid, even if you leave in the first week. Some will waive the tuition fee if you leave in the first week or two. There is also an increasing scale of tuition fees owed as leave dates get further through the academic year. Check the small print.

    The Maintenance Loan is entirely governed by Student Finance rules. Anything which covers you up to the date you leave, is repayable under the general rules i.e. as deductions from wages after you're earning over the repayment threshold. Anything which is calculated as covering you after your leaving date and up to the date of your next payment, would be repayable in full when you leave (although you can usually agree a gradual repayment plan with SF).
