Government Maintenance Loans

Full-time students can apply for a Maintenance Loan of up to £8430 (for the 18/19 academic year) to help with living costs. Maintenance Loans are paid into your bank account at the start of each term.

From 18/19, new part-time students can also apply for a Maintenance Loan.

The exact amount students can borrow depends on:

  • your family’s income
  • where you live
  • what year of study you’re in
  • the course you will be studying
  • • if you are studying full time or part time.
