    Hi,

    I completed one full year of an undergraduate degree and dropped out, Then I
    completed 4months (Sept-Early Feb) of an NHS funded undergraduate degree and dropped out.

    I would like to start a new 3 year undergraduate degree - how many years of
    funding do I have left?
    I suspect I only have 2 years left, are there any other ways I could fund my third year?

    Thanks

    It's length of course + 1 - previous years study. Student finance work backwards; so you have to fund your first year and student finance will fund your final year.

    What about my second year?

    Hi HannahEliazarian,

    If you have had two years previous study it will be used to calculate your future support.

    We look at the length of your new course, which is three years, we add an additional year.
    This gives you four years minus two years previous study.
    which means you have two years full support for year two and three of your new course.

    Year one you will receive a maintenance loan only unless you can provide evidence of extenuating circumstances, also known as their Compelling Personal Reasons (CPR)

    If you could not complete any of your previous academic years due to CPR, once you apply send evidence on headed paper written by a professional person who was aware of the situation, explaining the reason, what happened, when it happened and how it affected your studies or reason withdrew.

    Send the evidence with a cover letter and customer reference number, this will be reviewed on a case by case basis by an assessor. If accepted this would mean an additional year of support will be awarded and you would have full support for the length of your new course.

    Thanks Rona
