Hi all,

Today, I received an email from SFE informing me that I won’t be receiving a loan to assist with tuition fees, but will be receiving a maintenance loan.

I spent two years at Leeds Beckett University, resitting my first year but then transferring to the University of Worcester due to ill mental health and ongoing issues in my personal life, both mental and physical. However, as shown on the Student Finance website, I did not receive a tuition fee loan for my resit year at Beckett (this is an internal policy of theirs, whereby they don’t charge a tuition fee for resits). Surely this must mean I can receive the tuition fee loan for me full three years here in Worcester. In conclusion, I have only received one year of tuition fee funding but am being treated as though I have received two. If anybody can advise me further, it would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers

Hi there, even if you did not have to pay any tuition fee, you still studied so it counts as 1 year of previous study. With 2 years of previous study you are required to self fund the first year of your new course unless you can provide evidence of Compelling Personal Reasons http://ow.ly/MsMM30pjjOm
Thanks, Isaac
