    Every one gets one extra “gift” year of funding to restart or repeat a year.
    You would be fine but remember that you have used your gift year. That means you need to be 100% sure about your new course.

    Have you applied elsewhere yet? You might find your options are limited now that the January deadline has passed. Don’t forget to list your full education history on your application including your current university. You might be able to get a reference from someone on your current course.

    If you’re applying for the same course then if you completed the year it might be possible to apply for second year entry at your new university. If not then completing the year is usually still helpful for applying to first year.
