    I dropped out of SOAS at the end of 2016 for personal reason, spent the year fixing my mistakes and now working to sustain myself. I want to apply to university again now that im determined and ive left my dark stuff in the past. I want to know if its still possible to get a grant, and if its still possible to get a maintenance fee too. I was in university for one term before dropping out. I am thinking of starting with access programme, but im not too sure what the acceptance rates are for them. If anyone has any advice id love some help, just want to get myself back on track.

    Hi ilikejamandtoast,

    What course are you going to be studying?
    What college or University are you going to?
    How long will the course last?
    How many years previous study do you have?

    Thanks

    Hi catherine,

    I am planning on studying a 3 year sustainable development course at university of Edinburgh . I had one term of previous study at SOAS, so less than a year but i believe that student finance still counts this as one year. I have spent one year in a rutt, very depressed and unemployed as I was fixing my mental health and I am 19 now trying to figure out how to restart uni again. I want to apply before the deadline and also want to know if i would be eligible for maintenance loans. thank you

    Hi Ilikejamandtoast,

    When calculating your student finance, we take the length of the course, plus 1 additional year, minus any previous study.

    For example, to study a 3 year degree, it would look like this:

    3+1-1= 3 years of funding. So you could apply for full Student Finance for the course.

    If you're planning on doing an access course first, this wouldn't be funded by SFE, however, you can apply for an Advanced Learner Loan. Here is a good overview of what you can receive and the eligibility criteria.

    I hope this information helps.

    Kind regards,

    John.
