So i’ve been studying a course i really hate and it’s done my mental health so badly that i’ve applied to study something completely different at a different university, i have already done a year on my current course and am mid this year, however something worrying me is student finance for my new course. I feel dumb but the info i’ve found it so vague and worded weirdly. If I’ll have already studied two years on one course and i’m applying for a 3 year course am i going to have to pay tuition or what !! i’m sooo confused and stressed also .. any help would be amazing .
(p.s. also mentioning mental health during the process would probably be out of the question for personal reasons)

Hi Irollia, students can receive funding for the length of their course + 1 additional year - any previous study.

If your new course is 3 years long and you have 2 years of previous study, your calculation will be 3+1-2= 2 years of funding available. This means you will be required to self fund the first year of your new course unless you can provide evidence of valid Compelling Personal Reasons http://ow.ly/MsMM30pjjOm

Mental health is a valid compelling personal reason for not being able to complete your first course, as long as you are able to provide professional evidence, please click the link above to learn more. Evidence can be uploaded and our assessors will decide if the evidence is acceptable.

Thanks, Isaac
