If I leave current Uni in term 2 of first year, what happens about my student loan? I want to start same/ similar course in another uni for start of September 2021. Will my student loan be transferred to that Uni? Do I need to apply again? Who do I contact for help on this topic?

You wasted 1 year. In total you have 4 years if it's a 3 year course, length of the course+1 year-years. So they will fund your degree for all the years that you will study. You need to apply again through UCAS to other universities and inform student finance about it.

Make another thread and ask ASK ENGLAND STUDENT FINANCE someone who works there will most probably answer your question tomorrow.

You have to apply for funding for each year anyway. If you don’t conplete the year and withdraw then SFE will contact you explaining how much of your second instalment is classed as “overpaid” and how to arrange to repay that amount asap (they are reasonable IF you talk to them). The rest of your loan and tuition fees won’t have to be repaid until you’re earning.

As a withdrawn student you have to apply again as a new student for funding for next year (if you completed the year then switched universities you would be classed as continuing by SFE).
