Government Maintenance Loans

Full-time students can apply for a Maintenance Loan of up to £8430 (for the 17/18 academic year) to help with living costs. Maintenance Loans are paid into your bank account at the start of each term.

Part-time students can’t apply for a Maintenance Loan.

The exact amount full-time 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
