SFE funding if defer my dissertation to 2024/25 as a non-attending student?

I am in my final year of my degree but due to extenuating circumstances I was forced to defer 3 modules and my dissertation to the August resit. I am working flat out to submit the courseworks and prepare for the 3 exams but have to admit defeat with my dissertation. I am not going to turn it around in the available time so am going to have to defer it to next year as a non-attending student. I am a mature student/ single parent and have been in receipt of a full maintenance loan. Am I eligible for any funding next year ie. maintenance loan in these circumstances?

Hi there,

If you're classed as non attendance you won't be eligible for finance with us. I would suggest speaking to your university welfare adviser's, to see if they know of alternative funding options.

Thanks,
