I dropped out of Uni halfway through my second year. Unhappy with the course and going through some personal problems (depression, death of my mother). Anyway, Im taking a year out/working and now thinking about applying for the course I really want to do (a foundation degree in Animal Welfare and Zoo Management at Chester Uni) but Im not sure about my funding options...
Would I be eligible to apply for another student loan? A maintenance grant or anything else? I could live at home whilst studying so accommodation would not be a problem, Im just wondering if Im going to be totally on my own in paying tuition fees

Given the circumstances that contributed to you dropping out, you should be ok to receive full support with your tuition fees for all years of the foundation degree.
You would need to apply to Student Finance England, and submit evidence to confirm your claims. A letter from your GP about the depression would help, alongside possibly a copy of your mothers death certificate. You should then be granted an additional year of support for compelling personal reasons.
