Repeating Year

Due to personal circumstances I am repeating my second year of uni for a three year course, this will include another year of tuition fees (and maintenance loan). This decision has been fairly recent, so my application for third year student finance has already been approved - I will need to change it.

How do I inform SFE of this? Will I be entitled to another year of tuition fee loan and maintenance loan?

This actually seems like the only way of contacting SFE about this issue, and the information online is vague and conflicting.

Thanks for any help.

Thank you. Will I need to provide any evidence of my circumstances for this updated application?
