    Hello,

    I've applied for student finance late in August as I didn't know if I was gonna return to university or not.
    Ive done a foundation degree at Brighton uni for 2 years and passed it, then did a top up degree for 1 extra year but failed so this year I am repeating it but Im scared I will not be eligible for funding anymore.

    My university has sent me an invoice to pay £6000 by November 1st for tuition but I'm still waiting for student finance to notify me I they will fund me or not.

    What will happen if I get rejected? Will i have to pay 1st term tuition fees to my uni? (Id drop out as I cannot afford it, which will be devastating) baring in mind that it is not my fault if I do not get approved... Theres no way on earth that I could pay even a fraction of that £6000.... Im now so scared!

    I had the exact same thing, thinking I was going to go on placement and didn't. I did my student finance in September and it still said Application Pending

    I called up student finance and they said I needed to go to student services so the university can formally register me and confirm that I did come back for this year (even though I was registered just not by SFE) so I did and they said they will put my invoice on hold and contact SFE and the next day my Application was approved - I still haven't received the money since I was so late but payments have been scheduled and the tuition fee for this semester was automatically paid and the invoice for my wholes year tuition got sorted out.

    Hope this helps :-)

    Hi Patrix542

    You will be eligible for funding to repeat the year of study as you have not used your gift year yet.

    Thanks
