Hi, I'm considering going back to uni to do an undergraduate course that I was accepted on years ago, but dropped out in the first year. There were many reasons but nothing serious like illness/bereavement, etc.

Do you think it's likely I'll be given a second chance at the same uni/same course? Should I refer to it in the personal statement? Also, would I get funding?

My head is swimming to be honest.

I think you might well be accepted.
Why don’t you call the university and find out?

I think you can get student loans for the course length plus an extra year, which is to cover things like dropping out and resitting a year.

I think you need to take a shot and get a degree. I am doing my MBA. I have online courses. At 1st I had doubts about MBA admission but this degree can give me more chances to get a higher salary.

I'm still hopeful. Just waiting to hear now.
SummerDream this is the thing exactly. At the moment I'm working in a rubbish min wage job. It's fine, pays the bills etc, but I know I can do more and I want more for myself.
