Dropping out

Just curious if anyone can explain to me what will happen if I drop out of uni, it’s my second year and I don’t think I can fully complete it. I’m scared that i’m not going to have to pay back thousands and i’m just wondering if anyone can explain to me what happens tuition and student loan wise.
Hi!

I have dropped out of university twice so I am well versed in this topic lol. Firstly you must contact your course director and explain the situation. they will probably have you fill out a form for your reasonings. Depending on the time of year you leave will depend on how much of the tuition fees you owe. If you have not left yet it is likely you owe 100% of the fees for this year. So in total your student finance should be year 1 & 2. You should not have to pay for year 3. Also you are not expected to pay this upfront it is just on your student tuition bill which you will pay back if you earn above the threshold. ( i am unsure what this is you would need to research) In terms of student loan this should be the same, you only pay back if you earn enough money in your job.

Thankyou so much that’s really helped me calm down about the situation.

I am glad! But definitely contact your course director and even contact student finance so they can give you more advice, university is not the be-all-end-all, don't feel obliged to continue if you do not feel able. You will find your feet, take some time to rethink what you would rather do, I hope this helps :smile:
