Failed 3rd year, had a gap year, repeat or stop?

Hi there,
I was studying BSc Comp Sci, it's a 3 year course, however i failed the last one.
I had a gap year because when the university finally replied to me, it was too late to apply for a 4th (and final) year of finance.
Now is the time where I decide if I go back for another year, or give up on uni.
However, what happens if I give up? Can I even do that?
What would happen to the money I already owe SFE if I want to end the studies here? Does the loan stay the same way and I pay only above 24000£ salary?
I cant find info, only the website saying I have to pay in full if i pause my studies? Is that it? I have to find 30000£ in full?
:frown:
Thanks for any help
Hi Danny. If you decide not to return to your studies, your full balance of what was paid in terms of Maintenance Loan and Tuition Fee would need to be repaid but not until you earn above the threshold amounts. Unfortunately, we are limited with answering this query from here as we are not trained for repayment questions, you can contact this team directly on 0300 100 0611. Thanks, David

Thank you David, I will give them a call.
Also, is there any way I can read the contract that I signed? I am very worried about someone telling me I don't have to worry and then I end up needing to take a 30k£ loan..

You'd need to check with that department directly. They'll be able to further assist you regarding this. Thanks, Jason
