    I attended the first term of year one of a degree course back in 2006 but decided it wasn't right for me so left before the first term ended. I'm considering returning to university to persue a different course. Am I still eligible for a student loan? Thanks.

    Yes, but you only have 3 years of funding

    As above, yes, although it's not strictly true that you only have 3 years of funding left. Everyone is entitled to a loan that covers the full length of their degree (some degrees are 3, 4 or even 5 years long) plus a 'gift' year. You've effectively used your gift year, but as long as you don't have another false start or need to repeat a year, you have enough funding left for a full degree.
