Dropped out year and 4 months into uni

If I wanted to start a new 3 year course what student finance would I be able to receive?

Your 1 year and 4 months will count as two years of previous study. The calculation for funding a new course is:

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

So for you it would be: 3 + 1 - 2 = 2 years.

If you have compelling personal reasons for dropping out, you can submit evidence to apply for funding for the additional year.

Also, there are exception courses that are funded regardless of previous study - usually healthcare courses.
