    I am currently in my third year, but due to personal circumstances, I would like to redo the year.

    The only problem is, I have done one year at a previous university: LJMU, and then I changed unis due to pursuing a different unrelated course until now.

    So now I am at my third year at MMU, and I am desperate to repeat it, but as I've done one year at another uni, I am not sure if I can get help financially(as this makes it my fourth year of student finance alltogether, however only my third year at my current uni). I wouldn't mind not getting the personal loan and the grant, but the university fees are my issue. Is there any way I could get help with this or does student finance not cover it. Please please help

    If you have evidence for the reasons for repeating then you might be able to get exemption under the Compelling Personal Circumstances rules - these are assessed individually so it's difficult to guarantee either way but they're generally used where students need to repeat due to health or mental illness or due to bereavements.

    If you can't get your extra year covered by the CPR rules then you would be eligible for the normal living costs loans and grants but not tuition fees. You can use your loans/grants to pay your tuition fees and it might be possible to convince your university to offer a fee waiver or repayment plan for your fees that make the extra year more manageable.
