    So I studied film at university for 2 years and left after the end of my 2nd year. This was for various reasons as I had a lot of bad occurrences in my personal life that led to a few problems, as well as having an issue with the course itself. After a few years and getting everything sorted finally I feel like I'm ready to go back, however I know I'm a year short of funding. I've been told by student finance if I supply them with evidence from my doctor as well as the information of the counselling I had they would review it and assess whether or not they will grant me that extra year, however if they don't, will there be any other way to get it or will I just have to suck it up and fork out the first year myself?

    If SFE award you compelling personal reasons then you'll have full funding.

    If not then you'll be able to get a maintenance/living cost loan but not a tuition fee loan for your first year. Did you pass your second year? Are you planning on reapplying to similar subjects? If so and you get entry into Yr 2 of a new 3 year course then you'd still get full funding even without applying for CPR from SFE.

    If you have evidence then there's a very good chance you'll be awarded CPR for your previous study.

    My course didn't have exams but I always passed the coursework, however it would be a different course and university that I would apply to.

    Would the guidelines of application for both university and student finance be
    different now as I'm 23? I know one university I looked at considered me a mature
    student
