Had to Repeat Second Year - Thinking of doing a Masters in the future

Just like the title says - due to several very difficult situations in my personal life and how they affected me mental-health-wise I didn't do so well in my academics. I submitted my EC form for all the coursework I failed, got it approved and am onto re-doing my second year in 2023/2024.

I am still on the fence about whether or not I want to do a postgraduate degree but I don't think I would be able to do the course due to how funding from SF works, right? Since I am repeating my year and SF only covers four years worth of loans, I would probably have to fund the entire thing myself.

Just wanted some advice if anyone has been through something similar.

Unless you are talking about an integrated masters, postgraduate funding is separate from undergraduate funding. You can apply for a loan that can be used towards tuition fees and living costs. Some info here:
