You will repay the £1820 but you don't have to physically hand over the money now. You begin making repayments in the normal way (monthly dedications from you salary) if you are earning over £21,000. Why do you want to drop out and move to England?
Thank you for your answer! I emailed my university just in case and their response is the following:
Thank you for your email. You do not need to repay SAAS funded tuition fees. Your tuition fees are funded by the government, so you do not need to repay them, but your entitlement to future funding will be affected. If you decided to return to studies, you may not be eligible for support until the second year of your course.
So, now I'm even more confused. I'll contact directly SAAS and update the post with their information.
Why did I decide to drop out? There are many factors that contributed to this but let's just say it wasn't for me in general. In the field I'm currently working -- IT, the degree isn't very important, and all the other benefits of the university life just don't apply to me for one reason or another.
That being said, if someone is in my position I strongly advice to think the things through very carefully, my case is just very specific and I'm still risking a lot.
