    Hello

    If you have previously gone to uni but left for medical/personal issues Is there any way round getting funding for 3 years full time.

    I have applied for part time course however I want to switch to full time 3 year course! BUT they said I have only 2 years of student finance and i would have to pay for my first year. Is there any way around this! I left for circumstances for my health. Or is there any where i could help fund me

    Hi cupcake1993,

    If you reapply to undertake a full time course you can be confident that previous part time study is not taken into account as long as no qualification was gained.

    If you have to repeat a year of study, or had to suspend/withdraw from your course, we would use your previous full time study to calculate your future entitlement to funding.

    A student can be awarded an extra year of fee support if, it has been a result of Compelling Personal Reasons. CPR can be considered if:

    The student failed to complete a previous course. In this case the additional year of funding is applied to the first year of the next course.

    There are many different reasons as to why a customer may have had their study affected, illness being one of them.

    If you have to repeat a year of study, or had to suspend/withdraw from your course, we would use your previous study to calculate your future entitlement to funding.

    You may want us to consider your extenuating circumstances when making this calculation, also known as your Compelling Personal Reasons (CPR).

    When you apply for your new course we would advise that you send a letter detailing your CPR along with any evidence of your mitigating circumstances.

    That would be a letter on headed paper, written by a health professional or someone professional aware of the situation.

    The letter needs to detail the issues you experienced in the academic year concerned and how this affected your studies and the reason why you could not continue your studies.

    This would be reviewed on a case by case basis by an assessor, if accepted you will be awarded an additional year of support.


    Thanks Rona
