    So I’m currently on a foundation year and I want to leave around April for various reasons for a short time until September when I can try again. As far as I’m aware I can take another year for foundation if I mess it up so it should be possible. But I’m not sure they’d let me do this and ideally I’d like to avoid paying any student loans back for the time I’m not there but still technically enrolled. Any help or advice would be great

    Hi Jacob,

    Do you have any other previous study?

    Thanks

    Hi Jacobe,

    Students are entitled to the length of their course, including an additional year minus any previous study, for example, if the course is 3 years the calculation would be 4 + 1 = 5 - 1 = 4 years of funding still available.

    Thanks

    Hi Jacob6874,

    Any loan payments that you were entitled to receive will not become repayable until the April following the end of your course and then deductions are taken only when you are earning over the threshold.

    Thanks Rona
