    Hi

    I'm not sure if anyone can help me, my uni and Nhs bursaries are being pretty unhelpful.
    I just got confirmation that I failed my re sit so can't continue to my 2nd year, I have to repeat the year, but only one module.
    I'm an Nhs student, and I'm trying to figure out if I'll get any bursary for my repeat year, and if I'll get any student loan for a repeat year? Any advice would be appreciated
    I already used my "gift year" because I've completed a degree previously.
    The reason I've failed is due to illness so I'm thinking I could apply for compelling reasons in order to get an extra years funding?
    Has anyone got any advice or has anyone had any experience of this situation?
    Thank you x

    Hi
    for your student finance you will need to send in compelling personal reasons which can be:

    1. letter from yourself explaining the situation
    2. letter from professional person confirming what happened and the main things an assessor will look for is how your studies were affected and dates (so dates of when the illness happened, when you missed studies etc)

    I'm not clued up about the NHS bursary side of things though so honestly not sure if you would get it again, I would advise you to give the NHS bursary line a ring and just ask

    Thanks Murpo for your reply. I'm just wondering though, I won't be taking my repeat year full time, I will be in attendance approximately 4 hours per week, I also have do to one full time placement for a month. Does this mean I should still get the loan element for the full year? (I only receive part of the loan anyway due to being an Nhs student) or will it be pro - rata?Thanks
