    I am an EU student and have gone to uni twice before. First time I gave up after I paid for the second semester and dropped out before finishing my first year. Second time I didn't even wait to finish the first semester of the first year. I have my reasons, which I would prefer not to share here, so please don't ask me. I will be starting university in the UK in September and am very worried that I won't be able to apply for student finance.

    Hi sleepykoala,

    Students are entitled to the length of their new course including an additional year minus any previous study, for example 3 + 1 = 4 - 2 = 2 years of funding still available.

    If you had a compelling personal reason why you had to leave the course you can send in evidence of this to get an extra year of funding.

    Where applicable, we recommend the evidence;
    • Is signed and dated
    • Confirms the reason why the student could not continue with their studies and
    • When this took place

    Photocopies of all evidence can be accepted and this evidence can include;
    • Medical evidence from a GP on headed paper
    • Letter from HEP on headed paper
    • Letter from Social Services on headed paper
    • Letter from clergy or professional person on headed paper
    • Death Certificate and/or
    • A Birth Certificate

    Thanks

    Catherine
