SFE funding

Hello student finance,

I studied 2 years prior and left my course due to not getting marks (I was going through mental health issues from a family member’s death and the stress of it, my grandad passed away in 2020 may and during that time was Covid and we weren’t able to reach Sri Lanka at the time and when we did it was during 2021 and I had missed my resits)
While I completed my first year I didn’t get marks to go to 2nd year.

Student finance has told me that I will have to fund tuition fees for my first year this time but because it’s so short notice and I have started the course already I don’t have enough to cover my expenses and the tuition, can I pay monthly for the first year or can I appeal?

Hi there,

If you're not studying an exception course then those rules would apply. All years of funding go to the last year(s) of the course. If you have, however, had to withdrew previously for reasons outwith your control you can apply for CPR: Compelling Personal Reasons to see if you're eligible for an extra year(s). I've enclosed a link below that explains this further: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/going-back-to-uni-or-repeating-a-year Thanks, Jason

Hi Wsashya,

You would need to provide the Compelling Personal Reasons to see if you can get a year back for your Tuition Fee Loan.

Thanks, Drew
