Maintenance loan

Government support for living costs is available to English domiciled undergraduate students in the form of the maintenance loan.

The amount of support that you receive is dependent on an assessment of your level of household income by Student Finance England.

All eligible students (UK) can access repayable living support from the government. The amount of loan will vary depending on whether you live away from home, live at home with your parents or study at a university in London. 

The government has released proposed student finance figures (2022/23 academic year). Please note: these figures are subject to parliamentary approval, which should take place in early 2022.
