Student Finance OverpaymentWatch this thread
Hope somebody can help me!
I started university last year and received my student finance for the first term. I dropped out of uni after around two months tho and decided to reapply for 2022-23. I recently applied for student finance but received an emailed today saying they would be deducting £3,000 from what I am entitled to for 2022-23 due to receiving this money last year. However, I had to pay £2k of this last year to the university for accommodation so I don’t have this money left over and then deducting this amount from my loan will make it incredibly difficult to live at uni in London next year. Any advice on what to do ?
Worst case is that you will be deducted, which is simply because they did give that money and it was spent, whether you used the full amount or not, your uni will not return any fees so you may have to front that cost. It's not great, but i would prepare for that eventuality.
Sorry to hear you're having this trouble.
