    i have been studying computer games development, and since starting i didnt enjoy it all it just wasnt for me, i chose this course thinking it would be something i would like but it turned out to be the complete opposite but i stuck to it and my depression and anxiety only grew, i stayed for the first year and barely passed, but now that im in my second year, i am just as worse as last year, i feel so much worse, im not good at the course at all, i have no friends at uni and im really miserable, i have been thinking about dropping out because i cant really take it anymore, but if i drop out what will happen to my loans and how would i repay them, i get the tuition loans and a maintenance one which is £1000 a term, im currently in my 4th week of the first semester, second year, can someone help me out?

    If you genuinely have depression, you can claim CPR for this year because technically now you’ve used two years of Student Finance.

    Next year you can go back to same course for second year or start from scratch if your CPR is approved.

    what I wanna do is drop out and get a job so i can sort myself out, basically take a gap year where i can reevaluate what i wanna do because i dont know if i want to go back to uni but if i decide in the future i want to it would be a different course, im just wondering if i drop out now how do i repay the loans i took and do i have to pay anything immediately as i have already started my second year and for weeks into it?

    You can talk to your uni about going on medical leave. You can take a year (or more) out and come back when you are ready. You are on leave, not dropped out, so your place will be there when you're ready for it. I'm not sure how this affects the current payments from SF, but your uni can help you with that.

    You may also be able to et a certificate of higher education form your first year. I think it depends on the course though. Again, discuss it with your uni.
