Still receiving loan although my studies are suspended Watch

    So I started my first year of uni however within the first month I decided that at this current time I don't want to study and wanted the year off. I stopped attending and spoke to my tutor about the situation.

    I wanted to leave for the year and return for the new academic year 17/18 and study the same course , I had to fill out a leave of absence form which basically meant that the university would suspend my studies until I wanted to return , this way I technically haven't left university and didn't have to go through the whole application process again

    Now my problem is that the date for the second maintenance loan payment has come up and it has been paid into my bank, so basically I have been paid my maintenance loan although I'm not attending university.

    I can't contact student finance right now so was wondering what would happen? Will it just be repaid how it normally would or would they expect me to return the money they sent?

    As well as this nothing has been said about the first maintenance loan which I had because I left before the term finished which means technically the rest of the money should of been repaid straight away or something?

    I'm clueless and was wondering if anyone can help, thank you!

    They ll expect you to return any money overpaid to you. It might just take them a few weeks to realise and then you ll probably get a letter.
