    I was currently studying.bussiness economics but 4 weeks into second year i have decided it is not what i want to do, i also find it very difficult no matter how hard i try at it which is giving me a lot of stress. so i figured.quiting is the best to do even though i feel like ive let myself down i believe rather then forcing myself to carry on and persuading myself i can.do it. i think now it is time for me quit before i waste more of my time and unnessary effort to try and get my.head around it.which is never going to happen.

    I have already paid 9000.tution fee and recieved 2.4k ish student loan. however what will happen to the other 2.4k that i should of been getting if i didnt want to quit.

    Personally i need some of the loan in order to pay for rent that i have contract for...

    Also should i tell my uni or sfe that i have quit or does that matter.

    As soon as you stop being a student, you stop getting SF. So you won't get that second £2400. If you leave now, you will also have to repay all but 4 weeks worth of the first £2400 instalment.

    If you tell your uni that you have quit, they will inform SF and the process to recover the money you owe would begin. If you're in student-only accommodation then you would have to leave.

    Depends on how your uni works. If they have any kind of lecture/seminar attendance monitoring, they could notice pretty fast. If they don't, then the first potential trigger will be a missed coursework hand-in deadline or an exam no-show. Even then, it depends whether it's standard for staff to follow up in those situations or whether it's just allowed to happen without intervention. I doubt you could last longer than the end of January at most unis - less at some.
