Hi,

I have been studying at Northumbria University since 2018, where I've started Computer Science course which first year I have passed in 2019. Because of my mental health & adult ADHD that I was struggling with, I was down low that I won't be able to pass the next year (bad memory, can't focus on anything which is important in Computer Science), I've changed my course to Graphic Design which was my hobby. Unfortunately, the course that I am studying has been completely something different that I was thinking, what made me fail the first semester and now struggling in the second one (the program is very badly constructed what made many people drop out throughout the year).

My question is:

If I have passed the first year of the Computer Science course in 2018, can I go back and change the course from Graphic Design to second year of Computer Science at the same university and still get all the tuition fees loan and maintenance loan that will able me to finish the course?

Thank you very much in advance.

Hello

This will be down to the university's discretion. If you get in touch with themselves they may be able to shed some light on this.

Regarding funding this should not be an issue so long as you are not having to repeat the first year again.

Best of luck!

I hope this helps.

Regarding your move, this is a question that only Northumbria can answer. Regarding finance, you get a gift year which was used up when you changed to Graphic Design, so as long as you can enter into Year 2, you will still be able to fund your whole course.
