EU students – taking a break or withdrawing from your studies

if you decide to take a break or withdraw from your studies, you need to contact us and let your university or college know as soon as possible so they can tell us.

if you leave your course before term 3, we won’t make any more tuition fee loan payments to your university or college.

You'll still be responsible for paying back any Tuition Fee Loan we've paid to your university, but not until your income is over the repayment threshold.

if you don’t tell us about a change to your circumstances, you might end up being overpaid. in this case, you might have to start repaying earlier and before your income is over the repayment threshold.

taking a break or withdrawing from your course could also affect any student finance you can get in the future.
