I am a 2nd year student and have been advised that my best option is to defer my studies and start the year again September. I have recently dislocated my shoulder and broken my arm. I will still have rent and utilities pay for my accommodation and will be unable to work for at least the next four weeks possibly longer. Will I still be entitled to my maintenance loan to cover these cost, I have all the medical evidence? Will I have to pay all of the tuition loan? I have made my loan application for 2017-18 does this alter with me doing year 2 again rather than it being my final year? Thanks

Hi Angiarchi, if you are suspending due to medical reasons you can apply to discretionary payments team to keep your current funding in place. You will be required to provide three months bank statements with any debt or arrears letters.

With regards to your tuition fees you will need to speak to your university. Your previous study would be taken into account to work out your eligibility although if you have compelling reasons why you were unable to complete your course you can provide evidence from your doctor for example.

We will require to know the dates effected and how this effected your studies.

Hi, If your university confirm you have suspended due to health grounds you are entitled to an additional 60 days support from the date of your suspension. Please ask your university to send over confirmation the reasons of your suspension. They will need to also notify us of your tuition fee liability for academic year 16/17. If this is your first repeat year your course will be covered however attendance on a previous course may affect your entitlement. Thanks
