I decided to 'drop-out' from my 2018/19 Uni course in December at Sheffield Hallam University
. I was studying BA Business Economics but it wasn't for me. I spoke to someone at the University about withdrawing, and I had to fill these forms out to 'leave'. She recommended that I take a 'break-in study' until the next University year (until September) so they keep me on their records, and I believe she said I wouldn't have to apply via UCAS again if I wish to return. I think she mentioned that someone will be in contact during May/June asking if I wish to study there for the 2019/20 year.
So, I've now decided that I want to study BA Business Studies at the same University, but I'm wondering how I should go about this process. I'm not sure if I still need to apply via UCAS (despite the advisor at the University saying someone will be in contact. I just don't want to do what she said, then when it comes to the time it turns out I can't study for the 2019/20 academic year.
Also, I believe the deadline for UCAS was in January? I'm not sure if this is only for students applying via college or sixth form. Does having a UCAS account from 2018/19 make a difference with the process of applying?
If I don't have to apply again via UCAS, how do I go about applying through SFE if I haven't applied for a course through UCAS?
I actually had an offer to study BA Business Studies for 2018/19, I'm not sure if that's relevant at all for a place in the 2019/20 year.
I'm just wanting some clearance on the steps I should take to study in September 2019/20, I don't want to fully rely on what the advisor told me at the University for it to not be true.
If anyone can help that will be greatly appreciated
