If you are withdrawing from your Master’s course and have accessed Postgraduate Funding from SFW or SFE, you will not be eligible for Postgraduate Funding for a future Master’s course, even if you have not received the maximum amount (see table below). However, if you are withdrawing from the course due to Compelling Personal Reasons (CPR), you can submit a request for discretionary funding for the new course, as below.
If you do withdraw from your course, you may have an overpayment of funding. Please see below for further information.
Compelling Personal Reasons (CPR)
If you feel that something out of your control had a significantly detrimental effect on your academic performance or ability to study and you had to withdraw from study, you may be eligible for discretionary funding on the grounds of CPR.
CPR can include health-related issues, disability, family problems or bereavement but this list is not exhaustive. If you think this applies to you then please contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org
There is no guarantee additional funding will be provided, as this is at the discretion of your funding provider.
Depending on your Last Date of Attendance, the funding you have received will be re-calculated on a pro-rata basis. Any amount that you have received as an overpayment, will need to be paid back to the Student Loans Company immediately, or by setting up a payment plan.
