heres some context as i feel like i might be confusing - i appreciate a quick response

please note, i am in a london university, hence this means i come under UK students

i did my undergraduate degree (3 years) from 2015-2018
- passed it all, no retakes etc

following this, i jumped straight into a Masters (postgraduate) in 2018 and i am currently scheduled to finish next month (September 2019), i have just found out that i have failed one module which i must retake next year.

My question is, will student finance fund this for me? they funded my undergraduate and current masters. so im not quite sure what to do as i cannot afford to pay it. for the record, because i am only having to retake one module instead of the whole course the price is only 1,500 instead of the usual 7,000

Hello,

If you’ve received the maximum entitlement then we wouldn’t normally fund you for a repeat year. If the reason for repeating was due to Compelling Personal Reasons then we may be able to award you an extra years funding but you’d need to provide us evidence confirming the reasons you’ve had to repeat.

Thanks, Erin N.

hi, there was no compelling reasons or anything like that, but i have just been told to redo a module for next year. im curious because i always hear others who retake a year and get funding. i have no history of doing retakes, dropping out etc. i really need the funding. are you sure? what does the maximum entitlement mean btw. like i said i have never abused the system, never had to retake, never dropped out and started another course/another uni. i hope this mean i can get the funding for the retake. the price is much smaller aswell consdiering its only one module meaning the price is 1,500 rather than 7,000

Hi,
If you have no Compelling Personal Reasons then you will not be funded to repeat a module.

Thanks, Isaac.
