    Hi

    I have received conflicting advice from SFE advisors over the phone, so I don't know what to believe. I hope somebody can help me.

    I dropped out from the first year of a 2013/14 course (3 Years) due to medical reasons. I was subsequently granted CPR.

    I then went on to study a course at another university in 2014/15 (4 years, including a foundation year). I only completed the foundation year, and used this FY to gain entry to another university for 2015/16 year (3 years).

    At this university, I completed the year, however, I failed due to mitigating circumstances. I was granted CPR. One of the reasons why I failed was due to depression. I made a bad choice to study here essentially.

    Now, if I want to study at another university (3 years) starting 2017/18, how many years would I be entitled to?

    By my understanding of what you've said only your foundation year would count as non cPR study. So that would count as your gift year leaving you the length of your new course funded (so if you repeat/restart again then additional years wouldn't be covered unless you were granted CPR for those years too).

    Thank you for your reply.

    In regards to what you've stated, that was my initial thought. However, Student Finance have not been able to give me a definite answer. I don't blame them as my case isn't exactly the most common. Regardless, I'm still hopeful that I have the funding for my new course.

    Hi there.

    It's difficult to give you a definitive answer from here when we can't view your account.

    CPR is awarded on a case by case basis so we would need to know how many years of CPR you have actually been awarded, are you aware?

    By the sounds of it your years of previous study, with the exception of the foundation year, have been cancelled out due to CPR.

    This means only your foundation year would be included as previous study giving you 1 in total that can be included, so it's likely you'll still have full funding for any new course and have used up your +1 year.

    Thanks.
