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. 

Once the UK government has confirmed maintenance loan figures for 2022, information will be displayed here. You can still find out information about the maintenance loan for September 2021.

Students who are resident in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland apply for student finance via the relevant student finance agency.
