Hi all

I dropped out of my university and was liable to pay 25% tuition fee this has been done. I understand this will be taken from my gift year entitlement so I should be able to get funding for another degree.

The reason I dropped out was due to a housing crisis at home and receiving an eviction notice which meant I could no longer study and had to devote my time to help out my parents and then develop a routine to take my siblings to school etc. extenuating circumstances ultimately.

Do eviction notices and housing crisis count as compelling reasons to get my gift year back?

I appreciate any help


Why do you think you need your gift year back? If you start a new course the funding entitlement is calculated as follows:

Length of new course (years) + 1 (gift) year - years of previous study

So for a three-year course it would be 3 + 1 - 1 = 3 years

A four-year course - 4 +1 - 1 = 4 years.

Just in case I need to retake a year if I ever fail.
