    Okay so I started university, but my life has changed and I need to be closer to home but I dont want to leave studies, so ive contacted a local university and theyve said transferring to them shouldnt be a problem and they will call me on monday, but their course doesnt start while january so what would happen in this period would I stay at my current university or go home and wait for the course to continue?

    Hello ,

    I'm sorry to hear that your life has changed and altered the course of your educational journey some what. At least you have found another university and can start there that is closer to home.

    Yes, if you were to start at this other university you'd have to inform your current university that you are leaving and then you'd wait until January to start your new course - this would give you chance to find a small part time job to save up some money, prepare for the start of a new course etc.

    Good luck!

    Hello Ben

    No problem, happy to help! I believe if you contact Student Finance (ring them on any weekday) and explain your situation they will be able to best advice you. I doubt it'll effect your student finance too much as you'll announce that you are changing universities and living at home - but your financial situation hasn't changed so it shouldn't alter too much but SFE will be the best to contact.

    Good luck!
