    Hi guys,

    So I'm hoping someone can shed some light, I studied at uni briefly in 2010, I was there for 6 months and dropped out. I am now in full time work but looking to quit this to go back to uni in the september but I have been hesitant due to not knowing what money I would be entitled too.

    I currently pay back some of my student finance straight from my paycheck (I dont earn much so I only pay back £12-£20 monthly) but i just wanted to see what I would be entitled too, I live with my dad and I will be quitting my job to go back, cant seem to find what I'm looking for online so any help would be amazing!

    I only have £300-£400 in savings currently if this makes any difference.

    Thankyou!

    Yes, you are still entitled to three years funding. They give the time it takes + 1, so you will be fine.
