    Hi,

    I would like to know if I'm still eligible to apply for another student loan for another course? My case was back in 2016 when I drop out of University because of stress at my chosen course. After that, I found a job which I really enjoy as a commis chef in a hotel and started to paying back my student loan monthly.

    I've realized that I wanted to pursue more about cooking and want to apply for another application to take a pastry course. Can I still get another chance to apply for another application?

    Thanks in advance,

    Kobbie

    Hi Kobbie,

    Can you confirm how long you spent on your previous course? Also, did you ever study on any other courses of Higher Education prior to this course?

    Thanks

    6 months. After I drop out of the course, I'm in employment and started repaying my loan from last year's course. Right now, I'm self-funding my NVQ course last September. I'm currently working as a commis chef and wanted to take International Pastisserie Diploma next year September.
