    Hi would like some advise and what I can do for my son who until recent was happily attending university. Since xmas just gone my son has had a lot of problems trying to get funded from student finance. He was told that he had to many years of funding so they would not allow payment of 2016 until he had a personal compelling reason which with a lot of problems we did he was in student halls until January as student finance refused to pay him any more tuition fees or any more loans so he had to return home to live he was hoping to go back but student finance have taken so long to help him that the uni has now stopped him from returning he is now that depressed that he will not leave the house I was hoping that someone might be able to explain the reason that I've now been told that he is in fact entitled to finance but as the uni have told them he can't come back they won't pay any tuition fees but he is entitled to student finance what does that mean will he get his loans that he is in need of and has been since the beginning of January as while he was still in halls he had to borrow money just to be able to feed himself which as you may know has put him in some debt with friends and relatives I hope for his sake that he will be able to continue with his study's as I know he would want

    If he had to many years of funding then what happens is that tuition fees get blocked and so does the grant and the student would only receive maintenance loan, if compelling personal reasons gets accepted they he would get full finance. It's best if you call like I said in previous post.

    Honestly you should of applied way way way before September and had your evidence all sent in before September 2016 then you would of had answer before he started the year, can't really blame SF for that.
