I am currently an Adult Nursing Student (BSc) in my second year of University. This is my first course and have not studied any course previously.
This years summer up till now has been very difficult for me mentally and financially. As a result, my personal tutor has offered me an option to defer but I did not take it. Now I have decided to defer from my course this month (December) but want to return the next academic year, September 2024.
What are my options financially? I am aware that I will no longer receive anymore student finance for next year until the next academic year.
And would I have to pay back anything for the period that I am deferring? I want to return to my course the next academic year, as I just need time to recollect myself as my personal life and university is currently overwhelming me at the moment. If I do, I currently do not have the funds to do so at all unfortunately till I get a job next year.
Thank you for your time and patience.
