    Hello,

    I went to university at 18 but unfortunately had to drop out in my second year due to poor mental health.

    Now some years later, I'm keen to get back into my studies. I'm looking at a 2 year fast-track degree in the hope that this would be covered by SFE in light of me already having 2 years worth of finance.

    Is this possible? I'm hearing conflicting information.

    You're entitled to length of course + 1 - previous years study.

    If you dropped out due to health reasons, you may get compelling personal reasons, which means a year of study could be discounted and you could possibly get funding for your whole degree.

    Hi paintedpixie,

    We would fund you for the length of your course + 1 additional year of support and then take away your 2 years of previous study. This would allow you full funding in your final year of the course. Your tuition fees would be blocked initially for year 1, but would still have a full maintenance loan available.

    If you could provide evidence of the reasons for dropping out originally then we could review this and potentially fully fund year 1 as well.

    Warm regards.
