    I started on my masters last september (2016). Due to a lack of finances i tried to work night shits full-time in a factory from the start of December. As a result i could not focus fully upon my assignments and have not been able to complete them as i should have. Throughout my degree, i received support from DSA for long term depression and anxiety, something which i have not taken up this year(i know that i should have). These symptoms were exacerbated as a result of a lack of sleep throughout the month. Would these constitute compelling reasons for a restart next year . What do you suggest i do?

    Hi there,

    For compelling reasons, we'll need two things: 1) a letter from yourself explaining what happened, and 2) some evidence to show this. For example, we can accept a letter from your GP, or a letter from the university, if they were aware of what was happening. If that is accepted by our assessors, then yes: you'll be able to receive another year of funding.

    Thanks!
