If I started a university course 12 years ago in Romania, but left university after a few months and never completed not even the first year, do I still qualify for a student loan?

Yes

If you declare the previous study to SFE then they'll count that as your "gift" year. If you were self funded at a private university then that wouldn't count against your gift year.

Although if you don't declare it to SFE they'd have no way of finding out about it from other sources.

I'll move this to the Student finance forum to allow the SFE reps to look at your case.

Hi EspressoMachiato,

You may still qualify for student finance but your previous study would be factored into it when assessing your application.

All students are entitled to the length of their course + 1 additional year of support and then minus any previous study.

Warm regards.

Hi K4m,

Child Tax Credits are not considered taxable and wouldn't need to be declared.

Warm regards.
