Will i receive student finance?

Im currently studying medicine at leicester uni. I plan on dropping out of the course this year in my 2nd year of the degree. I wanted to ask if i would be eligible for loans for another degree (pharmacy/optometry)? (I accidentally used my gift year because i forgot to inform the uni that i declined my university offer in 2018 so they thought i was studying biomedicine at keele). I also had to use cpr as i had to repeat a year due to ill health - i basically was hospitalised for months. I suffer with schizophrenia which has made living away from home very difficult for me as I feel socially isolated at uni.

Hi there. Just to confirm, you have had 3 years in total of previous study. 1 from Keele university and 2 from Leicester university?

Could you also confirm the full name of the university and course you are looking to study? So we can check the funding for this? Also, when are you looking to start the new course? Thanks, Leah.
