I am a mature student who attended university over the past year as a first year student. Unfortunately I was hit with a rather debilitating illness that greatly affected my academic performance, and I just barely failed the year.
It doesn't appear as though I have any option to still complete my undergraduate degree at my university within the 3 years that I hoped, nor has the course I chose been anything like what I expected.
In order to complete my degree in the 3 years I planned (i.e. 2 years from now), I am considering transferring to a university that offers fast-track two-year degrees (and changing course).
My questions: Would I still be able to receive loans at the new university given that I failed my first year and due to the fact that since it's a two year program it the cost of tuition would likely be a bit higher (although lower overall as there won't be a third year)?
And, does it make any difference to Student Finance if you transfer and continue the same course or choose a different course?
