Hey guys,

I've been accepted into MDS but have since been informed I can't get student allowance because although I've passed my previous course, I with-drew (BEFORE academic penalty) and they count withdrawing part way though the year as a fail... even though it isn't on my academic record with the Massey Institution. Its devastating to me...
I rely on the allowance to be able to study (I'd especially need it up in Auckland!)
Don't get me wrong, I don't live off of benefits. I'm working full time, I worked part time while studying... I just need it to support myself while studying as my family isn't financially able to do that.

Anyway, I really need to look into alternatives quick. I had my heart set on studying up in Auckland.
Are there any scholarships I can apply for? If I go to MDS and pass 1 semester of work they'll look at reinstating my allowance for the 2nd semester, but I'm just not sure I'll be able to support myself for that first semester.

Yeah, I thought about that too but they're not even going to give me that because I've 'failed' half of this year according to them. Even though its not even on my Massey University grades record. Its madness.
If I pass half of my course next year they'll consider reinstating it but even then 190 a week living costs isn't really enough to live off of in Auckland. :/

Wow, that sucks. Sorry, no idea on the scholarship. If you contact admissions they'll know. Really hope it works out for you.
