My daughter is withdrawing from uni after 1st semester of her 2nd year . She is taking a break from study and will maybe consider returning to different course at sometime in the future. I understand that as she is in the 2nd year of her current course she is classed as having 2 years of tuition fees and to start a new 3 year course she would have to self fund for the first year. When I was speaking to a student finance adviser on the phone she advised there are exception courses where her previous study wouldn't be taken into account and she could receive full tuition fees and maintenance loan, however reading online I am finding conflicting information. Please can you clarify if you can receive full funding for exception courses and what those courses are - thanks

Hi there,

If she is suspending her studies due to health reasons then she will be able to apply for Compelling Personal Reasons to be awarded an additional year of funding. This means she doesn't need to apply for an exception course and can apply for a normal course that she wishes to study.

Our exception courses are ones like Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professional courses.

Thanks, Erin
